Rebecca's Story

I came into the program as a new FEP customer. I am a young mother of 2 small children whose father is currently incarcerated. I had no means of financial support. I am very motivated to get a job and become self-sufficient. I started the program in November of 2012 and jumped in to every project with gusto. I created a dynamic and truly outstanding resumé, and spent as much time as possible out networking.

I diligently pursued my job search as well. Two days after starting the program I interviewed for a Customer Service position at a plumbing company. I felt that the interview went quite well, but I hadn't been working for about 2 years. I was thinking it would still be a while before I got a job. The following day, I got a call from the plumbing company with a job offer — I cried and jumped around!
