Workforce Testimonial Quote Submitted By:
Montgomery County Workforce Investment Board

Meet Christina

"Dear Mrs. Wells,
I wanted to update you on my employment status and also send you an official thank you note. My husband and I struggled to even come to Montgomery County Works, mostly out of pride. My husband, Gerald spent 22 years in the United States Marine Corps as an officer before combat injuries and a poor civilian transition left him without work. He saw the Veteran's Montgomery Co. Works specialist and started with UPS in December 2013 and is now a supervisor through the company's veterans employment program.

In my case, your smile and professional courtesy helped me through a very different financial and emotional time. Coming from working on Capitol Hill as a Legislative Counsel and then my husband and I having our own federal contracting business grossing well over six figures to virtually looking at babysitting jobs and secretarial temporary employment was disheartening to say the least. You and the team in Wheaton Montgomery CO. Works made me feel like my situation (and my husband's) was only temporary. We were treated with dignity and respect by the staff from the front desk to the testing personnel.

So many local government agencies made us feel like we were barely human when we sought help, but not Montgomery Co. Works. You believed in us, took time to get to know us and our skills/abilities. You assisted me with getting into Towson University for the PMP certificate program and gave quality feedback on my resume and cover letters.

I am happy to say that both Gerald and I are gainfully employed and back on the roads to repairing our credit and other financial issues. He is a full time supervisor making close to 100k a year and I am getting ready to leave work as a Business Analyst for a medium size firm in Linthicum Heights, MD to back to work on Capitol Hill for a Member of Congress. We will not forget your kindness or the staff at the Wheaton Montgomery CO. Works office. Your professionalism, kindness, employment assessment skills and willingness to help us, gave us more than jobs, you gave our family back out pride and sense of worth.
