This opportunity that was given to me goes so far beyond employment. This opportunity was implemental in restoring confidence, self, worth, being part of a team, and feeling like a professional again.
These are things I thought I had lost when I made the transition from Military to Civilian life. The community at Retronix Semiconductor is the best I have ever experienced in a Civilian workplace. The sense of friendship, family, and work-life balance is above and beyond what I ever could have imagined.
I had never considered working the in the semiconductor industry prior to my experience working with Retronix, and now it’s the field I hope to continue my career in.
People may not realize that their skills can be transferred into the semiconductor industry and help them much more than they know. I worked with other Retronix Semiconductor employees that had dynamic backgrounds that helped in their continued success. Some were veterans, some worked in engineering, some worked in aerospace, and the list goes on. After my role with Retronix, I have accepted a position with a large customer here in Chandler, Arizona and am extremely excited to continue my career in semiconductors.
