Yamaha Marine visits WCC in hopes of employing students
Reps from Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers (YMPP) visited Walker Career Center on Friday, Aug. 30 and interviewed 8 students from welding, precision machining and auto technology. Students listened to a short presentation and then completed applications for jobs in various departments. Over the next week or two, they will visit the facility for a tour and a one-on-one interview. If you look closely at the first photo, you will see Ruben Ruiz, a former WCC student. Ruben is now full time at YMPP and was on hand to answer questions.
YMPP is one of WCC's valued business partners and an active participant in our work-based learning program. Last year, 7 of our students completed successful internships and were hired into full-time positions after graduation.
