Meet Sarah

Workforce Challenge

Sarah has health issues that made the type of work she was doing very painful and difficult. She discussed using the Family Leave Act with her employer when she was separated from her job.

Workforce Solution

American Job Center (AJC) referred Sarah to Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) to explore their services. She began working with them. In the meantime, she still needed a job. AJC staff gave her ideas of what type of positions she could apply for and not aggravate her condition. This gave her the confidence to try something new. Other workforce staff suggested she work with computers for future skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

Sarah got a job at Metro News selling cable/internet/phone services over the phone where she is paid an hourly rate and commission. This is great because she is good at sales.
