JOBS NOW! Program Success: Meet Linda
Don’t give up. It gets so bad sometimes when you are jobless that you might not be able to deal with it, but keep pushing on… I don’t know where I would have ended up without SELF’s caring support. It meant the world to me.
After searching for two years, Linda was struggling to find work — having held a steady job all her adult life, she found herself barely scraping by with temporary warehouse positions. Turning to SELF for their Emergency Utility Assistance program, she learned about another SELF program: JOBS NOW!
With the help of volunteer business professionals, Linda reworked her resume, practiced interview skills, and received interview clothing for successfully completing the program. Most importantly, she regained hope for finding better employment. Her hard work and training paid off — she was hired for a customer service position at a local Fortune 500 company.
