How come Book I status would say Not at all and Book II says promising? The way I understand outside is they'd give their own local members first crack. Don't add up when someone from another local says promising.

Up here it says it's both slow, some others will say promising in lieu of.

How does all this work? Once you get in on with a contractor and work a job if they like you they keep you and keep going to the next job wherever it may be? All the people waiting are just waiting for a call to go to work with somebody?

My questions may seem a little dumb founded but I don't have a full understanding as to how the outside works. The other part of it is; I think I heard somewhere awhile back not all locals will use the IBEW site to post work so you just have to call around to different halls and ask that way. Weigh in on this?

If you read it again it says the are 1 on BookI and 10 on BookII. I am bookII in my own home local since I have not worked there in some time. To maintain BookI you have to work 3000 hours in three years. To be BookI also you must reside in that local’s jurisdiction. So you are not be a member there but if you have a driver license from that state and have the hours, you’re eligible to sign BookI.
If you really follow the rules when you take a job with a contractor and the job is over you are suppose to go back and resign the books. Not this go to the next job as lots do.
