Alex: I was just looking for a career opportunity. The resume writing process really opened up the door to being able to apply and you know, really show what I was worth.

Katerina: I wasn't really sure how to do a resume. So it showed me how to do a resume. I learned how to do that online. Like what to wear to an interview and like jewelry and makeup. Because sometimes some jewelry you wear, it stands out and the people that are interviewing you can get distracted from it.

Jamie: It takes a lot of practice with interviewing and networking. You aren't necessarily born with confidence. It's something that you learn over time. And the more and more you do it, the more confident you get with networking, or applying for different jobs, or interviewing with different companies.

Rickel: I'm more active in the community than I was before, but I wanted something that would help me go into a career and I wanted to meet people I can network with.

Nicholas: You know, you give yourself a pat on the shoulder and you just keep going and you say, the next day I'll keep doing it and I'll get to where I need to go.

Alex: It took me a while to find a job. I saved up some money and managed to get my own place. And I'm able to wake up and go to work every day and provide for myself. And it's a good thing.
