New Year, New Jobs for Bridge Clients!

January 16, 2014

One of the key components of Bridge Communities’ programs is employment counseling. Job readiness training, resume writing, and mock interviewing are only some of the services we offer to help our families on their path to self-sufficiency. Through our employment services, we help over 60 clients per year, and we’re proud to share some of our recent success stories:

-Due to health reasons, one client was out of work for nearly two years, and worried that her chances of finding a new job were slim to none. After going through our employment program, she just obtained a job that pays $14/hour, and received a donated car from Bridge so she can get to and from work.

-One client had a pharmaceutical background in her native country, but hadn’t been able to find a job here. She worked with our employment services team, and recently was hired full time at a store selling vitamins and supplements!

-One of our clients had been working at an entry level position for the past 6 years at $10/hour. After a boost in her confidence from mock interviewing and coaching from our employment program, she just accepted a position at a new company–complete with a 20% raise in pay!
