Meet Adam Crist. Adam is 24 years old and lives in Ohio. On June 30th, he completed a simple online form. Today – he’s a Cat Dealer Technician. Just like that.
Adam grew up in the little town of Savannah, Ohio. He’s never been afraid of hard work, and wanted to explore a career as a diesel mechanic. He started his education at the Pioneer Career and Technology Center with industrial diesel classes, and went on enroll in Owen’s Community College, where he got an Associate’s degree in Applied Science. Adam’s work ethics stems from his parents. His father did not complete high school but taught his family that you can reach your goals through hard work and determination. His father owns his own business and in Adam’s words “can do anything, he is my role model”.
Ohio’s unemployment rate is Ohio is 7.3%, but the local Cat Dealer has 38 job openings – right now. Like many Dealerships across the country, Ohio Cat is struggling to find people who are willing to learn a truly useful skill. That means real opportunity for people like Adam.
If you’re not afraid to work hard, learn a trade, and maybe get your hands dirty, fill out one of these forms at cattechjobs.com and see what’s possible.
And remember – not all knowledge comes from college, and skill is a matter of degree.
