"I See This As My Last Interview" -J.R. Levels Up In His Career With New Training
A veteran whose 23 years of career experience had taken him from the military to manufacturing, J.R. wasn’t sure where his career was headed when he saw a posting for a new training program. While the technical skills training has helped him boost his confidence on the job, it was the emphasis on developing his soft skills that made the biggest impact on J.R. “Generation reminded me of a lot of things I had put on the back burner. [Like] time management, really being persistent in what you’re doing and sticking with it and getting the job done.”
Like many experienced workers, J.R. brought valuable experience to the program and graduated with a new perspective on his career opportunities. “I worked for a lot of companies where once you get in a position, you’re stuck in that position until something else opens up. But here, I’ve learned… that you don’t have to wait for a position to open up in order to level up. You level up according to the skills you have. And that’s exactly where I need to be.”
After graduation, J.R. earned a new, full-time position at Stanley Black & Decker and sees a long-term future in his new career. “Honestly, I could see myself retiring here as a tech, possibly as a supervisor. I see this as my last interview.”
