JJeannette is one of our major success stories and we are very proud of her. She worked very hard and was committed to move forward and succeed. She was on the verge of being homeless when she came to us; she was referred by our Life & Career trainer Elizabeth Butler. Jeanette made it clear she wasn’t looking for a hand out just a helping hand to help her get back on her feet.
We were able to get her an internship at the corporate of office one of the leading Banks’ for 6 months. They were very pleased with her, and at the end of her internship we advocated on her behalf for an employment opportunity. She was first hired as a receptionist, in a few short months she was promoted to administrative assistant; she further progressed in the company and was promoted several times. She became an executive assistant to one of the V.P but she didn’t stop there Jeanette went back to school with the full support of the bank and became a leading product analyst.
She also met her husband while she was interning at Banks, and they are expecting their first child in 2012.
