March Success Story

Reginio H., came to us after being long term unemployed and having no income for a little over six years.  Mr. Hernandez has tried other employment services in the community, but unfortunately he was still unable to find employment. Within a nine year time frame his prior work experience was in a wide range of industries and no position was the same. Upon program entry, he received intensive one-on-one coaching sessions to determine his transferable skills in order to make him marketable for employment. His sessions also included: a mock interview, resume and cover letter revisions, employment referrals and job search options. Within a few months of his participation and determination he was able to find part time employment with the possibility of full time.  As a result, he received support services offered from the Center to assist with transportation for the first month. Not only has Mr. Hernandez increased his income he will also receive paid training from his new employer.
