Meet Hilary Colbert, Limited Energy Technician Apprentice
Hilary is a Limited Energy Technician Apprentice. She performs preparation, layout from blueprints, installation and repair of low energy electrical systems such as telecommunications, intercom, alarm systems, electronic equipment and others.
She has worked and gone to school two nights a week for the past 4 years. “It is a challenge every day,” says Hilary, “but I enjoy my work. Especially with the customer contact. I like making our customers happy.”
According to Hilary, “The support is out there for women coming into the industry and the job opportunities are amazing. We need more women who want to get in and do the work. I take a lot of pride in my work – just because someone else before you did a bad job – you can get in and make it look good.”
