Micah from Chicago, IL

To find work as machinist, I need help to buy safety equipment and car repairs.

I've learned CNC Machining, but employers expect me to have equipment before they'll hire me. Also, I need to fix up my car so I can go to jobs.


I am a young, happy-going, extra-mile kinda person. Hardworking, always looking to have fun while learning. But very family oriented. Always a helping hand and mindful of others.

My goal is to take on a career for better changes to succeed in life. I have done lots of jobs that were not careers. Eventually maybe have a business of my own, but I know it's about starting at the bottom.

I need steel toe boots and work gloves. And my car needs a lot of required maintenance so I will be able to get to work.

Meeting this need will help me because having the proper equipment and having reliable transportation means a better chance at having that good job. I am already trained in CNC Machining so I just need equipment to find work.
