My start with HireAbility Vermont:
I was just pretty happy with the fact that I could actually help people and contribute to society—one of the biggest steps into becoming a responsible adult. I was able to apply for at least four grants. So I got to pay for half of my first [college] year. And then I actually got a job which is pretty nice. HireAbility Vermont helped me with my resume and an interview.
I’m hoping that after college that I’ll become an art teacher for elementary school. I’m now working, and I’m going to be in college soon. I just didn’t think I’d get this far. So it’s pretty exciting.
What HireAbility Vermont means to me:
HireAbility Vermont means a lot to me because they helped me socialize with other people who are also looking for a job. And actually being able to do something besides just stay in my house. Right now I’m taking a class for more experience, so I can have a temporary job revolving around graphic design.
My advice for anyone who is thinking about connecting with HireAbility Vermont:
I would encourage people to ask as many questions as possible just so they get an idea of what to expect and take as many opportunities as possible.
