Student Spotlight: Elgin Student Manufactures a Success Story
June 10, 2014
Trevor Combs entered the CNC Operator Program in January of 2014. Prior to entering the program, Trevor diligently looked for work, but was not having much success. About halfway through the program, however, he began taking advantage of the different opportunities available to him through the program. He decided to meet with the Program Coordinator in order to work on his resume, interviewing skills, and his job search strategy. He worked hard to tweak his resume and fine tune his interviewing skills. He attended a company tour at Parker Hannifin Corporation in April, which would turn into an amazing opportunity.
There were 10 iNAM students in attendance, but Trevor stood out the most to the company. A couple of weeks after the tour, he received a phone call from the Human Resources Representative. They wanted him to interview for a brand new internship position. On May 23, Parker Hannifin offered Trevor this newly created position. Trevor has completed the background check and drug test necessary for employment with Parker Hannifin, and anxiously awaits for his start date.
