While working with WRTP | BIG STEP, Quincy took part in the MC3 Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Heat tended career fairs and training tours, and he spoke with some tradespeople. The experience really opened his eyes to the building trades. Upon meeting the representative for the local Bricklayers, Quincy was impressed by their helpfulness and hospitality. While working at a Madison Metro Transitstation, the employees went out of their way to talk to Quincy and other members of the program.Quincy discovered that he is still able to use his customer service skills in his new field—he enjoys being personable, helpful,and letting his personality shine.
Quincy wants to let others know to keep an open mind. He says,“If you come with your mind made up and refuse to try new things, you may never find the right fit. “He came to WRTP | BIG STEP to be an electrician, but he’s now proud to say that he’s a Tile Setter. He also reminds others to ask questions and take advantage of opportunities—because there will be a lot.
