“After High School, I did automotive work along with other part time jobs but when Covid hit, all that came to an end. I realized that path wasn’t going to be long term and wanted to get into something where I could work with my hands, create stuff and have a future with good earnings potential. Welding caught my attention and I’ve never looked back.

My manufacturing career opened up the door for me to have steady work, learn the trade, work for a company providing good benefits and have above average earnings potential. Now that I am enrolled in a welding apprenticeship program, I have a long term career opportunity.”
