      1st Answer Example

      "I always knew that I wanted to be in the trades. My uncle, who I looked up to a lot as a kid, was an Electrician. I would spend a lot of time shadowing him and loved the pride he took in his work. My critical thinking and problem-solving skills have always been strong, so I had a natural attraction to this career path."

      "I knew I wanted to become an Electrician while working on construction sites in Melbourne, Australia. The physical nature of working on-site gave me a real drive to pursue this as a career as previously I had been working in an office for 10 years. While working with Electricians as a laborer I realized that it was a career I could get a great education if I pursued. This was very important to me after leaving the 10-year career in IT with no formal education in the field I worked."
