Thank you to all of our One Stop vendors for continuing our partnership and attending our Annual Vendor Meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8. We appreciate all that you do for our clients! Vendors who attended on Wednesday include:
It was great to see our client, Kywon, who stopped by our office to say hello. He came through our program in the spring and landed a job in the summer with the city, where he is employed as a sanitation worker. He said, “The program is great. At first, you have to get used to it, but you’ll like it if you’re willing to work on your behavior and lifestyle. The employees really help you. If you want to make it in life, this is the place to be.”
On Oct. 4, 2017, our One Stop client, Jose, was awarded a Sharon Dutra Student Training Achievement Recognition (STAR) Memorial Award through the Garden State Employment and Training Association (GSETA). Jose was nominated for his hard work and determination in completing his training through the National Career Institute (NCI), persevering in the face of adversity, achieving excellent grades, and obtaining employment. Thank you to Dr. George Blount, President, NCI, for showing his support and attending the ceremony in Atlantic City. We are so proud of Jose and wish him all the best!
Congratulations to our client, Keisha, on her new job! She completed our program last week and landed a job by Monday. “This is a great program; you get the help that you want, but you have to be motivated and do your part, too,” she said. When asked what she would tell others who might be interested in the program, she said, “Go! They really help you. If you want a job, they’re going to help you get a job. They also helped me with my resume, ID, and birth certificate.”
