The Fear is gone

Photograph of DebA mature worker and out of work for 5 months, Deb was unable to secure a job and faced the reality that she might need to relocate. Feeling fearful of her future, Deb’s self-esteem was causing her to doubt her abilities.

Deb went to Minerva Employment and Career Services and enrolled in the Work Smart program. They provided resume writing, interview skills, job search and employment coaching. Deb continued to job search until she received a call from the owner of Minerva Employment and Career Services who happened to be hiring and invited Deb to participate in an interview.

Deb was hired immediately following her interview and is helping others looking for employment. Her self-esteem and confidence are at a higher level than ever before and she feels valued at her new place of employment.

“Minerva helped me to create a resume that highlighted my skills and abilities in a way that I had not looked at them before and gave me a new perspective on myself that elevated my confidence and self-esteem,” said Deb.
