What apprenticeship experience did you benefit from most?
From the beginning, the biggest appeal of this apprenticeship experience was having a supportive and experienced team who always had my back. I was never going to be alone in my career journey and I knew they would be there for me when I needed them. Through their support, coaching, and mentorship, I was able to accelerate my career beyond what I had allowed myself to imagine.
