Meet Apprentice Ms. Sherrell R.

Sherrell is a single mom of 4 beautiful children who put her faith in her ability to learn a new trade and in Second Chance Jobs Apprenticeship Programs. This was her last straw and she put all her eggs in our training program. She was nervous and questioned every step until she developed trust in our instructor team and program. Sherrell brought a mother hen personality to our academic classes and naturally kept everyone in line.

Second Chance Jobs placed Sherrell with an employer partner who needed assistance in their electrical warehouse. She had it in tip top shape in less than 30 days. Her employer partner further developed her skills to include: ordering, wiring, stocking 30 trucks with supplies needed for each days jobs and making sure every job site had what they needed on a daily basis.

Her employer was so impressed with her that he hired her on full time. She received a $5 per hour raise, full benefits and an early Christmas Bonus! Go Sherrell!

Ms. Sherrell is currently studying to earn her Full Registered Apprenticeship as an Electrical Journeyman through our advanced certification program partner 327Careers.com
