Before M2K, Keith was struggling to find a job. He had a steady job for 9 years that he could not continue due to a conviction.
Keith found out about New Century Careers through his probation officer and decided to look into the program.
“I was just at a point where I was going through a really tough time,” said Keith. “But you guys turned out to be [a] life changing, lifesaving experience. I was in such a deep depression, I went with the flow for a while and I found the talent that I didn’t know I had for this kind of thing.”
While Keith was here, he received real-world, hands-on training through the Job Shop, where he gained experience on CNC machines and programming conversational CNC.
Keith was placed in a machinist job with a local company in October 2020. His plans for the future are to advance into the programming of CNC Machines, whether conversational or G Code.
