Current Employer/Job (if applicable):
What is something you learned (knowledge, training, skills) during Eastern’s Workforce training program that you utilize in your workplace and/or current training?
I am often on private properties with cattle that approach me when I am water sampling. The low-stress handling techniques to move the livestock away from fences where I enter and exit have been really helpful.
Did trainers/instructors/staff at Eastern contribute to your career success? How did they help you?
Yes, they were very helpful with questions/concerns, and very encouraging.
What advice would you give to current Workforce students at Eastern who are looking to follow a similar path to a job?
Have patience. It all takes time with anything you want to succeed and to learn what you really want to make a career of. If you enjoy your work, it won’t feel like work!
