Brigitte had been job searching for many months, and had not worked a paying job in at least 20 years. Through attending the Career Academy workshops she realized she had great volunteer experience that she could talk about in interviews, and that her passion for the community and the Earth was something she could also share during an interview.
Brigitte did everything we taught her to prepare for an interview. She followed up with a phone call, and sent a thank you note. Just when she was beginning to doubt herself, she got the call to say she was hired full time at IKEA. WITH BENEFITS. She is so excited to join their team, and be able to socialize and connect with all of their customers. She is especially happy that she happened to be at the right place at the right time, because she never would have heard of this opportunity without PIC!
