Tuscola Country – TI Automotive, located in Caro was among the 31 Thumb Area employers who attended the Thumb Area job fair on May 1st, 2019 at the Tuscola Technology Center (TTC). As of May 2, 2019, TI Automotive has hired at least one new employee, Crystal Dutcher, to start employment Monday, May 6, 2019, as a result of the Thumb Area Job Fair.
In March of 2019, Crystal Dutcher applied for employment, but as happens sometimes, she never heard a response for the employer. Upon learning that TI Automotive would be participating in the Thumb Area Job Fair, she decided she would go.
“I knew it would be a good chance to get in front of someone from there,” Crystal said. Her persistence paid off. After speaking with the HR Manager Mary Brinkman, Crystal got a call later the same afternoon offering her a position.
Having utilized GST Michigan Works! services successfully in the past, Mary coordinated with the Caro GST Michigan Works! staff to arrange for an On-The-Job Training opportunity for Crystal because she was an eligible candidate. Congratulations Crystal!
