November Success Story

Congratulations to Prosperity Center client Kent on his full-time position that will offer benefits and a competitive salary in a field of his interest! Well educated and experienced, he came to the Prosperity Center discouraged after being laid off 5 years ago, working odd jobs and freelancing to make ends meet. Employment Coaches helped him improve his resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and practice his interview skills, while Financial Coaching and Income Supports access helped his family live on a budget. Just over a month after he became a client, Kent was offered a position through a source referred to the Prosperity Center. He shared his gratitude in an email:

“I cannot thank you enough for the benefits there has been working to get to this point with Tiffany and Kourtney. The resume worked and it is clear that without your passing my resume to them, I would not even know about the job and I wouldn’t be in this new opportunity. Thank you so much for your help and confidence in recommending me for the position. I can’t tell you how great it feels to be doing something again that is in my core skill set.”

Thanks to his motivation and dedication to his family, Kent was able to overcome the barriers of long-term unemployment. We are proud to have him as a client and look forward to hearing about the steps he is taking in his new career.
