Precision Plus Spotlight On: Jose Diaz

Precision Plus

When I graduated in 2009 from Whitewater High School, my mind was set on having a career as a mechanic in the automotive industry. To reach that goal, I attended Blackhawk Technical college and earned a two-year Automotive Technician degree. With this gained knowledge, I worked for a construction company performing all maintenance on the heavy machinery. It did not take long to realize I lacked enthusiasm for the work and decided it was time to do something different.

Precision Plus Spotlight On: William Sanchez

Precision Plus

Hi, I am William Sanchez, a Customer Service professional at Precision Plus, Inc. As a high school junior in 2016, I started my career journey with Precision Plus through the Youth Apprentice (YA) program at Elkhorn Area High School and have been employed with the company ever since. At that time, I was most interested in finding a job in high school that could potentially lead to a very strong career. Precision Plus had endless opportunities to explore, and I knew it was the right decision to take the opportunity to work here.

My journey with Precision Plus started just two short years ago when I graduated early from Badger High School in January of 2018. Having been in the restaurant industry during my high school years, I was hungry for a different career path – one that not only provides benefits necessary for independence, but also a lifestyle allowing me to enjoy fun times with family and friends.

Our buses were filled with 165 students, educators, and engaged parents, ready to take on this year’s show – the biggest one to date.

Preparing Students to be Career Ready

Congressman Paul Ryan during his visit to Precision Plus earlier this year.

It is a positive thing when unemployment numbers in our country are at record lows and consumer confidence is on the rise. With so much good news, it’s easy to be optimistic about the future. However, as the economy continues to grow and businesses add jobs, we need to continue to focus on the skills gap that exists in our industry’s workforce. At a recent House Republican Leadership press conference, Congressman Paul Ryan talked about “the need for more workers and especially workers with the right skills.” The jobs are there, but the right people to fill these positions are needed more than ever.
