August 14, 2019 08:43 PM
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— JA Bell did not necessarily enroll in CNM’s Construction Program to land a job. After buying his own home, Bell knew it needed some repairs and figured that he should be the one to do the job.
"Works better if you do it right the first time,” Bell said.
Bell is letting his new skills guide him into a potentially lucrative career here in the Metro: Flipping houses.
"I would actually like to get into flipping houses so this is basically a way of not messing up,” he said.
With the shortage of general contractors here in New Mexico, there is no shortage of jobs for people like Bell. He said he’s excited to turn his new skill set into a hot commodity.
“Knowing that you’re there to kind of fill a void and that you have younger people wanting to get into the career field still,” Bell said.
