Welding teachers Eric Farrell and Shane Bartella recently invited Matt Kasprzyk from BOYD Corp. into their classrooms at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center.

Kasprzyk is the regional human resources manager for BOYD, a world-leading innovator of technologies in material science, engineered material and thermal management that seal, protect, interface with and cool their customers’ most critical applications. He spoke to the students about the company, and gave them some tips on job interview skills and job readiness skills.

“I think he did an amazing job presenting to the students; he also brought in some parts that the company builds as samples for the students to see the quality of the work they have to do in order to work at BOYD or a similar type of company,” Farrell said.

Kasprzyk said he was appreciative of the invite to the BOCES center and the opportunity to meet with the students: “I had a great time connecting with everyone and touring the weld shop. Many of the students came up to me after the presentation and were eager to ask questions and show off the projects they have been working hard on. It was a true pleasure meeting the future welders of our community.”
