Last week Jahi Taylor became the first apprentice of the 2018 cohort. Before applying to the ICATT Apprenticeship Program, Jahi was a student at Triton College and Peer Mentor to other students in the engineering tech division. He also mentored middle and high school stud
Why did you decide to apply to the ICATT Apprenticeship Program?
"I applied because I saw an opportunity to both further my education, and get the work experience I would have normally lacked upon finishing school. I have several friends who’ve recently graduated from 4 year institutions, but have struggled to find employment due to lack of actual job experience."
"The uniqueness of what the company does. Working on custom machines, means constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s new and what’s familiar. To come to work with a new problem to solve every morning is something I’ve always had as a personal goal for my career. It keeps every day fresh and interesting. My father and grandfather always told me to find something that I’m passionate about, and then make a career from it. With the help of the ICATT Apprenticeship Program and GACC Midwest, I may have found what I was looking for. To be trained to do something I love, and to the highest standard possible, is truly a privilege. An opportunity I intend to take full advantage of, and make sure I learn everything I can."
We are very glad that Jahi is joining BBS Automation through the ICATT Apprenticeship Program and look forward to working with him.
