Odds of Getting In

Sadly, discrimination makes it difficult for many to find work as gardeners. Being bilingual might help those who have a problem with this, but language is not as important as ethnicity. To make matters even more difficult, positions are filled by friends and family members of those already employed almost as quickly as these positions become available. Education and experience helps only with the upper level jobs, but getting experience is difficult without starting out in the lower level ones.
