Local Man Finds That Necessity is Also the Mother of Reinvention
By Sally Zegers, Hancock Herald 8/2/13

When Andy Falsetta found himself suddenly unemployed in the spring of 2012, it was déjà vu all over again. “Every time things are going great, something happens,” he says. “Things go good, then things go bad.” He had been employed as a truck driver, and the place closed down. He got another driving job, and the business moved to a new site, forcing him to travel hours every day to get to work. Then that business closed down. “I’ve done every kind of work to provide for my family. I’ve flipped pizzas, driven dump trucks, driven tractor trailers. I’ve built houses, worked as Highway Superintendent for the Village, everything,” he says. “I always looked to do better.”

With a Class A driving license, the 53 year old Falsetta knew he could find work right away, and considered it, including a passing idea about driving opportunities in the gasfields of nearby Pennsylvania, but one thought kept nagging at him. “What if it (the gas boom) lasted only a few years,” he says. “Then I’d be a few years older, and in the same boat. It was time for a change.”

At that moment in 2012, he went to CDO (which stands for Chenango Delaware and Otsego Counties) Workforce Career Center and met career counselor Fred Barkalow. The Career Center’s first step is to offer an aptitude test to determine an applicant’s skills and interest. For Falsetta, driving came up immediately, but a varied career over the past couple of decades had trained him in a lot of areas.  To read more click here.
