Halpin contacted me back in May of 2010 about a job opportunity. I had never heard of the employer previously and knew nothing about the electronics field. With a bit of apprehension because the position was something completely new, I accepted the role of Systems Assembler. After a year, I was hired in as a permanent employee. I continued to work hard in a few different areas of the plant before getting the opportunity to become a department lead in 2015. In parallel to acquiring this position, I began going to school for electrical engineering using the employer’s tuition reimbursement program. In November of 2018, I applied for and received a Production Supervisor position which is responsible for overseeing more than half of the employer’s manufacturing. I’m also one class away from receiving my electrical engineering degree!
