Tips for contacting Employers - Show that you are keen and interested whether you are contacting by phone, email or in writing. Say why you want to be an apprentice and particularly why in this type of work. Plan what you want to say and what you want to know before you pick up the phone or write. If you have any work experience or hobbies that are relevant mention them.
