"I thoroughly enjoy the nature of challenging work: problem-solving, communication, and the feeling of accomplishment when a task is finished. Working together as a team is critical in this field of work and special bonds are formed with your coworkers after a project is completed. I sought to join a company with this similar approach and looked no further when I heard about Boland."
Fun Fact: I like to learn about preventive approaches to staying healthy, not only for a long life but to optimize work performance for a successful career.

"I decided to apply to Boland as a helper because I had done two years in college and realized that it didn’t have anything to offer me personally as far as careers go. My father is a master electrician and member of Local 26. Casey Emory from Boland, and my father encouraged me to look into the trades and recommended that I apply at Boland for the helper position. And here I am today, excited to have been hired and eager to start my career as a steamfitter and build relationships at Boland."
