Cement Mason Pre - apprenticeship (Former Employee), Oneonta, NYJanuary 16, 2015
I have work experience similar to the qualifications that you are looking for. I also know what it means to be dependable. I can contribute my experience with the following: Cement Mason, Carpentry, Minor Electric and Plumbing, Tile Setting. I have also completed OSHA 10, Flagger, Scaffolding & Rigging, and Ramset Certifications.

I am committed to setting goals and completing assignments in a timely manner. I am self-motivated, hard working and dependable. During the course of my training, I learned to work as part of a team as well as working independently.

I learned everything from Oneonta Jobs Corps Academy and I'm grateful for the education and trade I've learned attended their facility.

Student worker. (Former Employee), Oneonta, NYJuly 28, 2014
Pros: free food, free living, free training, free healthcare.
Cons: staff's lack of motivation, staff's managment, student's cantankerous ignorance.
OJCA was a great program training wise. Residentially and Management wise it was in need of serious improvement. Over all it is worth the suffering as is with all great things. A typical day consisted of heading to the cafeteria eating breakfast heading to the pole yard and training and learning overhead power line fundamentals. As previously stated I learned the fundamentals of Overhead Line. Management residentially was sloppy and in need of serious improvement. Management vocationally was great and helped as much as possible. My Co-workers ranged from all ethnicities and all locations of the U.S.A. The hardest part of the job was the physical aspect but increasingly got easier as training went on. The most enjoyable part of the job was the vast amounts of knowledge that I learned and the capabilities for tomorrow.

Academic Instructor (Current Employee), Oneonta, NYFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: students
Cons: restrictions on how we can help students
Typical day would include housekeeping with the students, uniform check, attendance, two quick timed tests then teach the lessons for the day. After each lesson working with individuals to understand concept. Then counsel students on various aspects of daily life and career choices. Complete various reports and attend required meeting. Tutor students in academic areas of need.
I have learned to be extremely patient, as well as firm but compassionate in dealing with students and staff. The hardest part of the job is when a student decides to leave the program without a completion. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a student's face when they get a diploma and a completion of trade.
