Meet Jodi

Workforce Challenge

Jodi is a 42-year-old parent in a two-parent family who has been searching for customer service work, general office work, receptionist, and/or sales work for approximately five months. She has had many rejections for positions along the way, but has stayed positive and determined in her job search. Having a baby and not really wanting to leave him with just anyone has been tough for her.

Workforce Solution

WFC staff assisted Jodi in putting together several resumes and cover letters that would match the job she was applying for as well as gave her job hunting tips and interviewing tips.

Outcomes & Benefits

After five months of job searching, coming into the WFC almost daily with her baby, applying for many jobs, being persistent with employer followup and not giving up on her job search, Jodi did obtain employment with Durango OB-GYN, which is next to Mercy Medical Center where she set up daycare for her baby. She can walk over to see her baby on her breaks. She thanked the WFC staff and said that without their help she may not have gotten the job as they helped her become more job ready.
