While Jason Hill has only just reached his one year anniversary at Providence, he has already made himself an indispensable part of our team.
A glowing example of success in these tough times, Jason made the decision to earn a college degree and find a new field of work after being laid off in 2008. Looking to maximize his employment opportunities, Jason sought out the assistance of the Central Area Michigan Works! Consortium and took advantage of Michigan’s “No Worker Left Behind” program. Beginning classes at Lansing Community College in the summer of 2009, he graduated in May of 2011 with an Associate Degree in Business as a Computer Support Specialist.
Jason searched for employment and found that although he had a degree, he now needed on-the-job training. Michigan Works! was able to assist again, collaborating with his new employer (that’s us!) to make On the Job Training/National Emergency Grant funds available.
The interest and enthusiasm Jason demonstrated while in school and during the On the Job training period proved his commitment to bettering himself. He provides a great example of why these programs are essential to our state’s employers and workforce.
“Jason has been a wonderful addition to the Providence team,” says Jeff Dettloff, Providence president and Chief Problem Solver. “His passion for technology and for helping people shows in the positive feedback we get from both customers and from other team members. Jason’s service attitude is excellent, and his fun personality blends well with the rest of our staff.”
“I can’t overstate how grateful I am to be a part of the Providence Team,” he says. “The atmosphere is happy and helpful. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile for their clients and co-workers alike. I am very happy and proud to call myself an employee of Providence Consulting, where we Make Technology Easier.”
