Meet Sally

Workforce Challenge

Sally needed a job, daycare provider and transportation assistance. She was referred to Michigan Works, and she quickly realized that she came to the right place!

Workforce Solution

Through Michigan Works!, Sally attended workshops where she revised her resume and cover letter, as well as learned how to use the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website for job search. She also took classes on interviewing and dressing for success.

Outcomes & Benefits

After having her second child, Sally returned to Michigan Works! and found a job at a local motel. A few months later she secured a second job at a children’s center. These jobs helped her earn enough money to support her growing family. She says, “Michigan Works! taught me not only how to write a good resume, but also about the online job process and different sites. Without the transportation help that I got from Michigan Works!, I would not have been able to get to work.”
