WorkOne Northeast gave me a chance to start over in a new career, even at my age. Through education and training, I’m learning an in-demand trade as a CNC machinist at Greatbatch Medical and making a living wage at the same time. Thank you WorkOne for giving me the chance to show the world that old dogs can learn new tricks.
