This month at least, Friday the 13th is shaping up as a lucky day for Jason Wilson. That’s when the Sylva native is scheduled to graduate from Southwestern Community College with an associate’s degree in electronics engineering technology.
Three days later, he’ll start a new career as an industrial technical maintenance technician. He said his starting salary range will be in the range of $50,000-plus. That doesn’t include profit-sharing, which could equal up to 52 percent of base. Not bad for a guy who found himself unemployed just over two years ago.
Wilson will be working in Georgia at a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that has more than 400,000 square feet.
