Meet Stephanie

Workforce Challenge

As a single and unemployed mother, Stephanie needed help finding employment. She sought assistance from Michigan Works!

Workforce Solution

Through Michigan Works!, Stephanie was provided assistance with her resume and taught how to apply for jobs. She was added to the job pool and received information about available job postings in the local papers and from Pure Michigan Talent Connect. When she was called to interview, she reviewed interview tips and participated in a mock interview with her Talent Specialist Yolanda. They specifically talked about appropriate clothing and punctuality.

Outcomes & Benefits

The hard work and preparation paid off! Stephanie was hired on the spot as a Food Server/Housekeeper at Black Lake Family Education Center. She says, "Coming to the Michigan Works! office, I was greeted with positive, open arms. I was feeling down on my luck, but the staff provided me with a can-do attitude. Yolanda went above and beyond her job to comfort me in a hard time in my life as a single, unemployed mother. She listened to my life concerns without any judgments. I've learned so much coming here and started feeling positive about my future again. I have gained a great respect for all she [Yolanda] has done for me. She made this transition back into the workforce easy! I look forward to a positive future for my daughter and I. Thank you Michigan Works!"
