Jeremiah rode his skateboard nearly five miles to his first FSET appointment. Without money for a car, it was his best way to get around, and he was determined to do whatever he could to get back into the workforce. Today, we’re almost as excited as Jeremiah is to say that he’s starting a job that’s helping him get a new set of wheels and a kick start on life!
“He was living in a halfway house and told me he really just wanted to go to work,” says his Account Representative Craig. He talked with him about what kind of career he wanted and quickly pulled up a list of possible employers that could help him get there. Then they got to work on making a great first impression.
Jeremiah got a sharp new look for his wardrobe as well as his resume. The FSET instructors gave him one-on-one help writing a resume that showed off his skills, and Craig helped him apply for work. A clothing voucher later, and he was sporting fresh set of professional clothes as Craig took him to his interview with the specialty packaging and production experts at Services Plus. They offered him the job on the spot!
“This program is so awesome,” says Jeremiah. “All you have to do is put in some effort and you will be worked with and given help 100%.” Now he’s saving up for a place to call home and everything that goes with it. Congratulations, Jeremiah!
