The Jobs Funnel gave Karl the career change he was looking for.
Karl, a Bristol Resident, was looking for a career change at the time he enrolled in the Bristol Jobs Funnel. "I always liked working with my hands, but I also like working with people," he said. Karl was a CNC Machinist at the time, which, he says was a very solitary job.
Success and results by way of a full time job were not immediate for Karl. He spent two years gaining skills such as his OSHA 10 card. He also had the opportunity to take part in a plumbing apprenticeship. These opportunities were all afforded to him through the Bristol Jobs Funnel.
"Nothing in life comes to you overnight. It's all about your attitude and how you deal with things. There's no harm in gaining extra skills," he said.
Karl now works for All Pro Solutions. He installs and repairs water meters. "I enjoy the people I work with on a regular basis. I'm able to network in my field," he said. "My job is flexible, the hours are great and I get paid a decent wage."
