Meet Shameka

Workforce Challenge

Shameka was unemployed; she had previously worked on a contractual basis with the Veterans Administration.

Workforce Solution

Shameka decided to visit the Eastpoint Career Center to get help finding employment. When there she was able to have her résumé critiqued and suggestions were made to make revisions to the document. Suggestions were also recommended for the résumé to be abridged from three to two pages. A revised two page document for Shameka was developed and posted in Shameka's MWE account. A cover letter was created for Shameka to utilize for her job search. Additionally, Shameka's resume was sent to numerous private and public sector position postings.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the help from the Eastpoint Career Center Shameka was able to start her new job with MTA in June of 2014.
