It might seem like the job you’re searching for is hiding around the corner, but the only way to find it is to keep on looking! That’s not the only secret to success, though. Stacey can tell you all about the thrill of finding work, and a few of the things she did to make it possible:
- Turn challenges into strengths. Stacey came to the Wisconsin Works program determined to find a full-time job to support herself and her child. A child is a wonderful motivation to achieve your dreams and will keep you strong in the face of life’s challenges. Find a way to make any barrier you face into motivation to achieve your goals.
- Surround yourself with supportive people. Stacey says that one of the best things about working with Forward Service Corporation was “Very positive people to be around and learn helpful tips in life from.” Having positive role models and people you can rely on are keys to building your confidence and keeping it high.
- Use all your resources. Stacey “spent countless hours in the Job Center updating her resume and attending workshops” says Jessica, her Skills Instructor. Through the Wisconsin Works program, Stacey got job search tips, learned how to perfect her resume, and attended workshops that gave her the skills she needed to land the job.
Together with Wisconsin Works, Stacey found full-time work as a clerk to support her family and now plans to save up enough to buy a car and eventually a home. “I think the program is wonderful and very helpful. Awesome people!” says Stacey. Congratulations Stacey – with your determination and enthusiasm, we know you will be able to accomplish any goal you set yourself to!
