MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - One man hoping to jump on board with Airbus has been working hard to get a job at the multi-million dollar facility scheduled to be built in Mobile.
We first met James Boone at a job fair in Prichard and, Monday, he was back on the search.
"It's a full-time job, looking for a job," said Boone.
Boone arrived 12 hours early to go after a job opportunity at Huntington Ingalls and it didn't stop there. Monday, Boone was pounding the pavement, literally walking miles to follow up on leads.
"Early in the morning, I'm up at the temp and, if that's not successful, I'm online filling out applications," said Boone.
One of his stops was the Mobile Public Library. Boone is taking of advantage of the potential opportunities at Airbus, starting with construction and hoping to get on the skilled labor force.
"They are pretty much wanting welders, manual labor things like that. I'm really open and receptive for anything I can follow direction, I got a great work ethic and I have no problem working hard," said Boone.
Boone is one of many hoping for gainful employment with Airbus and, for them, the journey begins with the application process.
"I'm in the position that I can't be anything but optimistic," said Boone.
