Meet Angie

Workforce Challenge

Angie had recently moved from Puerto Rico and was enrolled in the Employment First Program. She knew little to no English, but was eager to learn and work.

Workforce Solution

Angie was given some locations of some ESL classes. She quickly enrolled and started learning English. When she attended the office out classes, I would speak to her in English and have her respond in English in order to practice. It was a long process getting her comfortable with speaking enough English to be comfortable to conduct a job interview.

Outcomes & Benefits

She attended our Opportunity Fair and for the first time felt comfortable enough to apply for jobs. She had two interviews and was offered two jobs. She consulted with me regarding the companies and the pay. She accepted a full-time job with Brookdale, a great starting place while she continues to learn more English. Awesome work!
