it's a catch 22. without experience, you can't get a job, and without a job you can't get the experience. try agencies for mates' jobs. blagg a bit.

Your first post indicated that you required help with constructing a CV, my offer still stands, but some input from you is still required, as I indicated.

Can any of your college tudors give you some help? They usually have some good contacts or links into the industry especially if you are moving on to level 3.
 
Get a job as an electricians mate / electricians labourer , will pay about £70-90 per day.
If you hang around a few electrical wholesalers dishing out 30 CVs a day I guarantee someone will Offer you some work sooner or later

As I said , print off 100 CVs offering your services as an electrical labourer and hand them out in electrical wholesalers.
Most electricians will pay 70 or 80 per day for skilled labour.

Yes they would for skilled labour. Not so sure if they would pay that for someone with no experience.

Get your services known in your immediate circles; friends, family, businesses; one of them might through you a small bone (socket additions etc) bit it still adds up.

Hi zaprinski,
What was your trade before starting electrical courses? Maybe you could go back to doing that full time and offer free or low paid labour to local sparks part time to gain experience.
Not ideal, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

It's a tough one, no matter what you do you'll have to bite the bullet and accept the low wages for while. It'll be difficult. We see many people offering free labour on here to get experience.
 
Sorry but i was out of the country for family problems. I hope my CV is ready in a few weeks. Thank you.
Hi mate, I think the best thing for you is to phone local electrical contractors and try and offer your services to them you must be willing to accept low pay though as you would effectively be a labourer with no electrical experience is difficult to get into with no electrical knowledge I know loads of young guys who are in college studying electrics and finding it hard to get a start with electricians and those that do are on low £££ I hope you get some luck
 
There are no real short cuts to be had,
You must have experience as well as technical understanding,
Now if you have the technical understanding ?
Now you need to get the experience
BUT HOW ?
The time honoured way,
start at the bottom and workup from there,
If you are as good as you claim ?
Then hopefully it won't take too long,
But you cannot avoid it all together !
No pain - No gain.
