I can finally say that I am employed. Yesterday I went to Cessna to do an interview for a job and I ended up getting the job. I am going to be Sheetmetal Assembler. Although it isn’t using my degree, it will be a way to a least get my foot in the door. I am actually very excited about the job just because it is honestly more up my alley. The idea of going into work dressing nice and shaving everyday doesn’t appeal to me. I guess you could say that I am a little more of the casual dresser and I hate shaving everyday, it hurts!!
I will start going through the classes on the 31st of March and will be in training for 3 weeks. After the 3 weeks are up and I pass the classes I will become a Cessna employee, it should be on the 21st of April. At that point I will start getting the good pay and awesome benefits. While I am in training I will be employed by manpower and not make as much plus not receive benefits. I am really excited about the opportunity to work in the aircraft industry. I would like to get my private pilot’s license eventually and Cessna has a program that greatly reduces the cost for an employee to get their license.
God definitely had his hand in me getting this job. My brother in law and sister in law knew a guy that works at Cessna who got me the job. He submitted it on Tuesday morning and they called me by 10 am same day and had me come in and interview the following day. The guy that works there said it was the fastest that he has seen any one get hired after submitting a resume. It is such a relief to finally have a job that pays well and has good benefits after the past few months of getting no response.
