“I just wanted to let you know I GOT THE JOB!!! Can you tell that I’m excited? Thank YOU for all you have done in helping me to get employed again.” – Georgia

“I have a bit of good news. I got a job at a local industry. It was a direct hire just like you guys have been talking about – non-posted internal jobs. I start full time with full benefits. I’ll finally have insurance and full benefits with 6 days of vacation this year and 10 next year. The Maintenance Supervisor said at the end of the interview, ‘You sound like you really enjoy what you do.’ I said I do and I’m glad it shows. They made me an offer just a week after the interview; it was great. I got a big pay raise and a chance to work for a growing strong company.” – Ray
