RHINELANDER/NORTHERN WISCONSIN - Looking for a new career? There's one job in huge demand in Northern Wisconsin: Welding.
To help fill those jobs Nicolet college is working with the Oldenburg Group and expanding their welding program.
Nicolet College's Dean of Trade and Industry Brigitte Parsons says Wisconsin manufacturers are highly competitive in the world market. They're getting more contracts, and need more workers.
"We're seeing continued growth in this industry sector and an increased number of jobs in welding and fabricating and machine tooling," said Parsons.
Oldenburg Group, specifically, will be looking for more welders and fabricators to keep up with demand.
"They just got a contract but they haven't begun employing people yet. So right now is a good time to start thinking about if that's a job that you might be interested in getting. Now's a good time to get the skills," says Parsons.
Nicolet College in Rhinelander offers a 9-month program for welding. They work closely with local leaders in industry like Oldenburg Group, so they're teaching exactly what employers want you to know. Some of Oldenburg's employees even teach part-time at Nicolet.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
