- "Kadeem utilized RW’s services in the past and when he came to this event, I interviewed him. I mentioned him to my manager Fran, and she wanted to meet him as well. After he came onsite, she decided to hire him on as a temp status so that he can get some more recent work experience on his resume and voila he started with us this week."

Hope Initiatives CDC Inc.
- “Rochester Works has been a vital partner for Hope Initiatives for many years. They have helped us to fulfill our mission of restoring lives by sending clients for whom we provide carpentry and other hard skills training while reinforcing job readiness and retention skills in an on-the-job environment as the clients fulfill their Work Experience requirements. Furthermore, they've made it very easy for us to hire from among our target population, which we've done at least once during each year of our relationship. Rarely in my 30+ years of business experience have I had the pleasure of really knowing an external hire on day one! RochesterWorks makes that possible.”
-V. Dale Sedgwick (CEO)
Farmer Jon's Popcorn
- Over the course of nine months, six unemployed candidates were referred to Farmer Jon’s Popcorn for interviews. All six were brought on board using the Work Experience Tryout program, which gave the Farmer Jon’s team the chance to see how each person performed on the job before committing to hiring them.
Five of the six individuals who started the Work Tryout program finished their four week try out period, and at the end all five were directly hired by the company.
"We got five great candidates and they’re staying with me long term."
