My start with HireAbility Vermont:
I was getting frustrated [applying for jobs] and that’s when I talked to HireAbility Vermont. I was so excited! They helped me get the job the same day I applied. Within less than 10 minutes, I got a phone call. I’m feeling great, and I’m so excited and happy to be going in and doing this job.
I just graduated and I did it at age 63. It took me about five years, but I finally did it. I looked at my son and I said, ‘I want to get my diploma’—and HireAbility Vermont helped me through it. I’m actually proud of HireAbility Vermont because they’ve helped me so much. That’s what I told my counselor, Annabelle. I said, ‘if it wasn’t for you guys, I don’t know where I’d be’.
My advice for anyone who is thinking about connecting with HireAbility Vermont:
Please sign up. I would describe it as helping hands—they’re there to help you. If you’re really serious about looking for a job, it’s worth it. I’m glad I did.
