My military career has taught me a few different things that have helped me to perform in both my current and previous roles at Air Products.
Having dealt with diesels during my military time set me up for my initial job with Air Products as a mechanic. Now that I’ve transitioned to a plant operator, one of the skills I need to keep sharp is paying close attention to detail. In this plant life, the smallest changes can make big impacts to the process, and I’m always making notes or taking pictures to make sure I capture everything.
The other skill that I’ve honed is patience. ‘Hurry up and wait’ happened a lot in the service, as it does here during the process, but I enjoy what I am doing now and am still learning.
Thank you for the opportunity and the acknowledgement! OORAH!!
