If you are a victim of the turbulent economy during this unprecedented time, reevaluate your priorities and opt for a mobile career in the leather and vinyl repair industry that offers stability and work-life balance.
The latest unemployment numbers indicate more than 24.5 million American workers are either officially unemployed or otherwise out of work as a result of the outbreak of COVID-19, according to the Economic Policy Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based economic think tank. Being laid off puts a dent in your bank account and can also cause physical ailments related to stress. A lay off can cause fatigue, headaches, nausea and insomnia, according to a report from Stanford University. Coping with the emotional upheaval of a layoff, as well as the uncertainty of the pandemic, is causing the mental health of many Americans to suffer.
Following the onset of the pandemic, approximately 35 percent of Americans reported suffering from symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, versus 11 percent the prior year, according to a survey conducted by the National Center of Health Statistics. Many hard-working Americans are opting to change the narrative. They are taking advantage of time at home to determine their career goals and turn their layoff into a positive change and investment in their future.

“I enjoy the people. You’re meeting new people every day,” said Kevin Kaiser, a CCI technician in South Bend, Indiana. ”The response you get from repairing something of theirs that they thought was ruined and seeing how excited they are and how much they appreciate what you’ve just done for them is the best part of the job.”
No Salary Cap
Service technicians at CCI have the opportunity to escape the rigors of corporate America and pursue a career with unlimited earning potential and a high commission structure. CCI service technicians are driven and self-motivated. Your paycheck at CCI will reflect your effort and not the whim of a corporate employer.
Set Your Own Schedule
CCI technicians have the opportunity to create their own schedules. Having flexibility during the pandemic is especially key for many families who may now have to supervise their children as they attend school remotely. Work-life balance allows hard-working parents the option of pursuing a profitable career while taking part in the logistics of running their families.
Learn a Valuable New Skill
CCI technicians are trained to investigate and solve customer problems. Every technician is fully trained in every aspect of the company’s repair and restoration process. Technicians apprentice with experienced workers before they are sent out on their own to a repair. “As you progress and start to gain confidence, you start doing bigger and bigger repairs to push yourself. You always have the opportunity to grow and expand and do better,” said Luba Bocian, a CCI technician in the Denver, Colorado area.
