In South Carolina, a program that makes apprenticeships work
NPR via MPBN News
Several years ago, South Carolina had a problem: a shortage of skilled workers and no good way to train young people for the workforce. So at a time when apprenticeship programs were in decline in the U.S., the state started a program called Apprenticeship Carolina. "We were really, really squarely well-positioned at the bottom," says Brad Neese, the program's director.

Women at Florida technical college push misconceptions of welding to the melting point
The St. Augustine Record
Diana Matykunas, 46, and Jennifer Nardone, 21, made a decision not many other women make in this day and age. They got into welding. Welding is the joining together of materials by causing surfaces to reach their melting points and uniting them by hammering, compressing or otherwise. It’s a discipline marked by high heat, heavy metal and the potential for danger. It is also misconceived. "You’ve gotta get the (idea) out of your mind that there is a man’s world or a woman’s world," Matykunas said.

Veteran Eric Gasiorowski gains opportunity at Joliet Junior College for a career in welding
Chicago Tribune
Sparks fly and metal melts as Plainfield, Illinois, resident Eric Gasiorowski works on a project in the Joliet Junior College welding lab. When it's complete, he shuts down the equipment and pulls off his welding gear to examine his finished product, thinking about his upcoming graduation in December — and how far he's come since his first days as an adult student at JJC. Before JJC, Gasiorowski worked as a paramedic and EMT for 22 years. He loved his job, but after two knee surgeries, he was forced to give up the trade. A career change was necessary.

Manufacturing boot camp matches trainees with jobs
The Baltimore Sun
Malik Williams always thought manufacturing meant working in a steel mill, a job that seemed gone for good from Baltimore. But since mid-October, the 20-year-old White Marsh resident has made his way onto factory floors to watch workers blend olive oil, create plastic containers and make custom-designed display boxes. He's learned about quality control and safety, shadowed employees and talked with shift supervisors, plant managers and human resource executives. And best of all, he's discovered, they're hiring.

The Times of Northwest Indiana
