Individuals are becoming employed through various programs at our RochesterWorks! Saint Paul office, here are some of the things being said when asked the question, how has becoming employed changed your life?
Lavonia Dunbar (Assistant Teacher) The Rite Care Child Development Center:
“Having a job has changed my life. It is helping a lot with my Kids because I now work with kids. Also, I now can do things with my kids as well.”
Danielle Downs (Office Manager) Native American Cultural Center:
“Getting employed has helped my life out a lot. It’s a big change working but the outcome is very good. I am now off Social Services!”
Lonnie Watkins (Welder) Mossman Tebbs LLC.
“Having a job has given me a chance to look forward to getting up and going to works instead of just sitting around or just doing Work Experience; It gets food on the table! As for the overall experience with the program I give it a 10- it has been an excellent experience. I appreciate you (the team) so much and all the help you gave me! Thank you!”
Corey Kusse (Advisor) RochesterWorks!
“With resume in hand and my renewed confidence from the job readiness training and despite all the anxiety and fear in the beginning, I had changed because of this program. On May 1, 2017 after interviewing I started my dream job at Rochester Works! I am able to help build confidence and help others on their way to their success. Becoming employed changed my life in millions of ways.”
Gregg Walker (Racker) QoS:
“Becoming employed has affected me I a good way. I enjoy being independent and having a place to go in the mornings. It’s great to be a productive member of society!”
