"I attended your resume and interview workshop at the Urban League of Chattanooga a few weeks ago and I want to thank you immensely for taking the time to help us out. Prior to attending your workshop, I was moving up from Orlando, FL and trying to find employment. During that transition, I was looking for work but was very unsuccessful for seven months. Though I wasn't hurting financially because of my prior proper planning to the moving process, I was slightly discouraged from not having success in finding employment in the Chattanooga area. After I attended your workshop, I took that week to apply everything you taught. When the job fair came, multiple employers flocked to my resume, and I had a hard time after the fact keeping up with all the emails, appointments, interviews and so forth for roughly a week. After a few interviews and job offers, I went with Sodexo. They are putting me in a management position for the East Erlanger location and are paying me pretty well since I have experience. I also get benefits after my probation period. I just wanted to share with you on the blessings that I am receiving. Thank you!"
