Goodwill Success Story

Monday, Oct 5, 2015

When Monica began the Intensive Job Search (IJS) program, she already had a resume and felt that taking this course was a waste of time. As she began to take the workshops, she learned she had more skills than she thought, discovered the best colors to wear, and the importance of making a great first impression. She participated in mock interviews and became less nervous speaking in front of an interview panel. She even practiced how to interview using Skype. Little did she know by updating her skills, she would land the career of her dreams. She credited her Employment Services Specialist, and Goodwill staff, for the support and encouragement she received, especially when she she did not get the first job she applied for and really wanted. Subsequently, she applied and accepted a position at Redwood Credit Union as a Personal Lines Account Manager. We are delighted that Monica offered to come back and speak to our participants about her experience and the benefits of the program. She said, “Through this program, I learned that I have confidence, and that if I want something, just go for it and take the risk!”
