Be A Star Thrower: DONATE
I am ready. It’s time for the next step. Heather [Social Worker and Marie’s Case Manager] and I have talked about it a lot. I have completed both the classes Catholic Charities Employment Services offer – the Resume Building and the Interview Preparation Class. Heather has encouraged me to go at my own pace, start job hunting when I’m ready. And I am. Heather is my cheerleader, I am so glad she is in my corner and helping me with these baby steps. It has been a long time since someone believed in me.
I’m pretty nervous. I have a record, but I just need someone to give me a chance! I am a hard worker and I want to work. I have found a few job leads. They are not glamorous. One is a customer service job. The other one is a cleaning job. That’s okay, I don’t care, I just want a chance to rebuild. I need it for my own self esteem and I want to show my kids that hard work pays off. I applied at both places.
The cleaning position manager called me the next day. I have an interview set up for next week! I know what to wear, what to say and what to expect from the classes I took last month. I can do it, I know it. I just need one person to believe in me too.
