Reply to "How you got started in the Industry?"

Being out of work in 1980, and in need of a job, I answered an Ad for a Copy Machine Training School that was being conudcted by PIC (Private Industry Council).

I was interviewed by Karl MacIntosh (Copy Machine Specialists). A few questions were asked and I had to take an written test. I thought I did ok.

A few weeks passed and I heard nothing, and then one morning I had a call around 8:00AM asking if I wanted to attend class that day, as a matter of fact I had to come right over. I thought about it and had nothing better to do that day, I said yes and was on my way to making $3.75 and hour to be taught how to repair copy machines.

A few months passed and I landed a job as a technician, it was only then that I found out that I was not picked to be in the class from the first interview. Apparently, there was only one woman in the class of 12 people. After the first day she quit, I heard she was not comfortable as being the only women in the group. I was the alternate...........my how things work out!
