At JobLink, Heather completed workshops on job seeking skills and joined Job Club. After completion, she was referred on to the JobLink Job Club. Heather’s Career Development Consultant knew that Heather needed some practical, “hands-on” experience to land a job, so she suggested a Work Experience at Davidson County Department of Social Services.
