It’s unusual for someone to get a job during the twenty-day workshop, but Sylvester did it. He got a full-time driving position at Max Finkelstein, Inc. When he rang the bell, Sylvester told the other people in his class that before long, they’d get new jobs too.

Nice job Sylvester!

Vincent started his target job as a warehouse worker at Gate Gourmet. He came in to ring the bell wearing the employee badge that he wears each day to work. He thanked everyone on the staff for helping him, saying “They really care about you. If you don’t come in and apply for jobs, the people here stay on you.”

Congratulations Vincent!

Rosa’s hard work paid off! After a summer of applying and interviewing, Rosa got a job as a teller at Village Bank. She encouraged job-seekers to keep going, take notes, ask questions, and apply, apply, apply.

Way to go Rosa!

Yoiner got a job as a Customer Service Representative at People’s United Bank. He said he would not have gotten the job without practice interviews, and the district manager at People’s told him that the three thank you notes Yoiner sent to different people made him stand out from the other candidates

Keep up the good work Yoiner!
