Our client, Lamont, stopped by to share the great news that he recently found employment as a manager in the shipping and receiving department at a warehouse. He participated in our NJ BUILD program, where he received training on how to use the machinery required for his job. Some of the machines include a cherrypicker, ride-on power jack, sit-down forklift, reach lift, and scissor lift.
“I love my job,” he said. “The program helped me with my resume, which got me in the door.” Through NJ BUILD, he became OSHA certified and was able to add this to his resume, making him a competitive candidate. “NJ BUILD also taught me to cooperate as a team and go forth from there,” he said. Thank you to the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and Project Impact for their partnership and support.
