COOKEVILLE – Ficosa North America, Putnam County’s newest manufacturer, is offering a part-time work program for higher education students who are looking to get paid and gain onsite experience while also working toward their degrees.
The first of four introductory sessions kicked off Thursday, but there’s another opportunity Friday, June 3. Times are 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The sessions are open to part-time (no less than six hours) and full-time (six hours or more) students enrolled at four-year universities, junior/community colleges, vocational education facilities and online credit achievement programs. Applicants must have a high school diploma or a GED, must be at least 18-years-old and must be authorized to work in the U.S.
Students who wish to enroll should send resumes to FicosaJobs.Crossville@ficosa.com (Attention Macey Kendall) and include the day and time of the session they’d like to attend.
More sessions are expected to be announced in the near future.
Ficosa’s new Cookeville production plant, located at 2991 Highlands Park Drive, will cover 270,000 square feet. The company plans to hire hundreds and produce nearly five million high-tech automotive products – chiefly adaptive rear-view mirrors – for tier-one automotive manufacturers. Officials expect to celebrate a grand opening this fall.
