Prepare For A Career In Manufacturing, Trades and Transportation at Lower Columbia College


Manufacturing over the last two decades has
changed immensely. It’s gone from an industry or job that is all labor to
jobs that require a skill level much higher than anything people like my father imagined
when he went to work. All along I wanted to do something that I
could feel good about, something that was meaningful and I think machining is a great
job to get in to. You are making things that make the world better. One quarter you may be up to your elbows in
the middle of an on-highway truck. The next quarter you may be tearing apart a diesel
engine and rebuilding it. The machines in there are very large and can
be very intimidating but once you start working with them you realize that they’re not that
intimidating and they’re very worker friendly and as long as you follow procedure and be
safe, they can be a lot of fun. Ask yourself what you want to do with your
life. Ask yourself “Do I want a career that in two years I can be out in the job field
working, making good money? Do you want to sit in a desk all day long or do you want
to be out doing something?” The potential for high income is there. Our
students are paid even well at entry level positions and then have tons of room for growth. Most of our students already have jobs lined
up before they complete the program. Employers are happy with the results but they’re wanting
skilled employees they don’t just want someone to show up, they need to bring something to
the table. This is a chance to better yourself; better
your life and two years or three years is a very short time to make that much change
in your life. You just have to make your mind up and do
it. Just keep moving forward and you’ll be successful.
