A Life-Changing Opportunity

Updated: Nov 18, 2021

Steve Simmons had been seeking positions with graphic design companies, but his options were limited, and he felt like he was stuck in the middle of nowhere. He was concerned he would have to settle for less, while trying to support his wife and two children. After reviewing the training opportunities through Full Employment Council, he realized that getting training in JavaScript might prove to be beneficial. With the ongoing support of his FEC counselor, he took a chance and enrolled.

Simmons had wanted to pursue a career in web development, but never had the time or the funds for the training. An apprenticeship with SnapIT was the answer. When asked about his experience and outlook for the future, Steve expressed his gratitude that the Full Employment Council could show him a path to success through apprenticeship. “The help you all and the FEC gave to me has literally changed my life! I can’t thank you enough," said Simmons. The training he received was helpful and relevant to his chosen field. "I learned a lot of technologies and industry practices that I had never used before. I was lucky enough to practice setting up and working with real life projects that mimicked a lot of what I'd eventually be doing daily on the job," Simmons said. Simmons encourages others considering apprenticeship as a pathway to success to go for it. "It can literally change your life," said Simmons.
