    Well I don't know you're personal circumstances but of the five apprenticeships I applied for the closest (and the one I got) is based 60 miles away. I'm going to have to work all summer to get a deposit down on a house closer to it with my mate and run a car, which technically speaking isn't 100% ideal but it should be an exciting experience in its own way. Unfortunately I think in the current climate you can't afford to be picky- I don't need to tell you interviews don't exactly grow on trees at the moment! A foot in the door is well worth putting up with some inconvenience for if it's an apprenticeship you really want. That's my opinion anyway.

    Well done for getting your interview, best of luck with it!
