“The JobsNOW program at Wake Tech was a great opportunity – I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s made all the difference for me.”

Scott Bridges had a career in the drywall business for 13 years, until a slowdown in the housing market put him out of a job. Scott, a father of three, was unemployed for a year and a half when he read about the JobsNOW program on the Internet.

Scott wanted a new career – and one less likely to suffer with every rise and fall of the economy. He signed up for Wake Tech’s JobsNOW program in HVAC and never looked back. The training he received made it possible for him to get a good job, and one with opportunities built in. He’s working as an apprentice in HVAC, and learning skills in plumbing, pipefitting, and welding as well.

And that’s not all. His new employer has agreed to pay for him to continue his education while he works. Scott says, “The JobsNOW program at Wake Tech was a great opportunity – I’d recommend it to anyone,” says Scott, “It’s made all the difference for me.”
