Jesus was looking for an opportunity to learn something new and grow in his career when his sister came across Project Azul and told him about the Manufacturing Skills for Success training. After enrolling and going through the training, Jesus was referred to Project Azul’s employer partner HydroGear and was quickly hired on as an Electric Assembly Production Operator.

This full time position with an hourly rate of $18 with benefits not only provided Jesus with more financial stability, but also fulfillment within his job. When describing his position with HydroGear, he stated, “Everyone is nice, caring, and very helpful. I’m able to learn new things and have room to grow. I don’t have to do heavy lifting, be in a dirty workplace, worry about if I’m going to be working that day, or be in a place I didn’t want to be at.”

Jesus’ next goal is to learn even more and grow within the company so that he can help by teaching new people.
