Today I called up 27 local garages/services/dealerships, asking if they require an apprentice or trainee mechanic. Two of those said call back in one month. One took my details. A further two said drop in a C.V (resume). Overall, a disheartening experience. I feel like i'm a decent mechanic with a lot of potential, but nobody will let me get my foot in the door.
Fuck my life. I am woe. Etc, etc.
