As an African American male with an extensive criminal history, I was at my wit’s end. A friend of mine referred me to Catholic Charities Employment and Training to get assistance with my search for employment. With the help of my Case Manager, I created a resume and obtained interviewing skills that gave me the confidence I needed to re-enter the workforce.
I must admit that it was not an easy journey. I spent countless hours applying for positions but I stayed determined and was constantly encouraged by the Employment and Training staff.
As a result I am currently working as a warehouseman with a growing company that has opportunities for advancement, competitive wages and benefits. I appreciate the time and encouragement the staff gave me and I would never hesitate to refer friends and family for assistance in their job search.
