Posted on: May 30, 2017

Oak Harbor, OH – Kevyn stopped out at OhioMeansJobs Ottawa County in late January, asking for assistance with his resume. After a brief interview, it was evident he was a very skilled welder/fabricator. Ryan Johnson, a previous OMJ Assistant, helped design Kevyn’s resume to highlight his skills, qualifications and experience.

Kevyn attended Penta to become a certified welder and has over 20 years’ experience as a welder/fabricator. He also served 4 years in the Ohio National Guard. “As a Marine Corps veteran, I take special care of my Vets. I saw great potential in Kevyn and knew he would be a great fit for Northern Manufacturing”, said Valerie Mannon, Employment Resources Coordinator at OMJ – Ottawa County.

Ms. Mannon forwarded his resume to Elizabeth Morrison, who is the HR Generalist for Northern Manufacturing. Just two days later, Kevyn went to a hiring event held by Northern Manufacturing. He was administered a welding test and was hired to start the next business day. “Kevyn is one of our better hires recently. He has good attendance and a positive attitude”, said Ms. Morrison.

OhioMeansJobs Ottawa County wishes Kevyn the best of luck in the next step of his career. Never give up and keep working towards your goals.
