Hi my Name is Sergio and I am writing this letter to whom ever can assist me, I attended UTI from September of 2009 to November of 2010 I had discontinued with the ford F.A.C.T program due to financial status and I observed I was getting no where and employment options were disappearing fast. Now I do recall that when a scout ended up coming to my parents home and introducing the school and what was it all about, the person stated 98% of the students graduated from UTI would be fitted in working for an automotive dealer and so on and so forth, that the minimum pay grade for anyone graduating UTI would start @$15-$17 an hr. Well I ended up attending and I'm guessing so did all of southern California, the classrooms were packed courses were slammed and there was more book work or sitting in the class doing nothing, than the "hands-on" experience I/everyone was promised. Sure I befriended a lot of students an a few I still keep in touch and out of all the 37 of whom I have questioned about employment, had the similar response "work at a fast-Food place", "retired home", "gasoline store clerk", and over half of those unemployed. I guess I consider my self kind of fortunate that I found a job after I dropped out working at a quick lube station at $9 an Hr, it was ok at first thinking I could pay back all of the FED LOAN within the first years, but like they say "life happens" I became a father not too long ago and was thrilled about it but then my daughter got sick, having seizures, and now still the same pay rate but now I am struggling with bills and had my car repossessed hrs have been reduced significantly from 40+ to now 30-32 hrs per week after the bills I am even lucky if I have money for groceries. The government will not help me with SNAP due to I had to move back in with my parents. Sometimes I think to myself what did I do to deserve this, I went to an institute to earn more money, and now it looks like the high school drop out gets more money than me in a job where the "skills" I learned are not used at all and it seems like I'll never be able to get out of this hole I'm in.
please if you could respond to my message and give me any information on any way I can get a little help it would be greatly appreciated. my email is email@example.com thank you for your time.
