Meet Jennifer

Workforce Challenge

Jennifer was working as a paralegal when she read about her local one-stop, The Employment Source, in the newspaper. At that time she was considering a career change. Her resume needed some work, and although the content was fine it needed reformatting to make it more readable.

Workforce Solution

Jennifer attended the one-stop's Career Life Planning workshop, where in a small group she looked for a profession that put her skills and bachelor of arts degree in economics to work. The personality testing, values clarification, skills identification and goal-setting exercises reaffirmed her desire to seek new employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jennifer began a new career at Kent State University in New Philadelphia, Ohio as a clerical specialist where she assisted students with financial aid. During the next two years, she realized how much she enjoyed helping students and applied for the position of Enrollment Management and Student Service Advisor at the college. She now advises students as they plan their course work and sends them to The Employment Source for resume preparation, scholarship information and job search activities.
