Congrats! Even though I am a female, I was always interested in being an electrician from the years I spent with my DIY grandfather who taught me. However you can't get a job with just some knowledge you licked up as a kid. Try as I might, I could never figure out how to get into the business. I got laughed at when I called different businesses which was very discouraging. Your thread inspires me to try again. Any one have any advice on how to get into the business as a woman and actually be taken seriously?

If you want it (and you do), keep trying and make it happen.
