Ed* came in to our office seeking assistance with an interview that he was attending the next day. The company had asked him to prepare a presentation on what he knew about the company as well as the job he was being potentially hired for. English is not Ed’s first language and he was having trouble understanding what the company was asking him for. One of our Employment Specialists sat down with Ed and helped him research the company and find information that was at the right level for Ed to present. We also looked up the position that he had applied for and what the job entailed, it was at that time Ed realized it was not the job he originally thought it was… it was even better! Ed felt confident and ready to present the information we had helped him research. As an end result, Ed was offered the position that same day and is now a successfully employed IT Technician.
