"I had a job interview the second day of the workshop.  I got the job.  What I learned on the first day of the workshop regarding how to handle tough interview questions was the winner for me.  I finished out the week and am now gainfully employed.  Thank you Miami Valley Works!"

At the end of every workshop, our Skills Training Facilitator asks the class "Give me one word or phrase that stands out from this past week?".   The responses are used to create the above shown graphic that is printed on the back of the "Graduation" certificate.  This was from Class No. 5.

During the Job Readiness Skills Workshop that was conducted the week of June 15, our participants were asked “What was the most meaningful experience for you personally during the week of the Workshop?”  Below are the responses:

  • “The Mock Interviews” – Cleveland Marshall
  • “Learning everything in its entirety” – Ronald Brown
  • “Everything…including today the last Mock Interview” - Carol Oldham
  • “Feedback from the interviews…Doing the interviews in front of the class was very helpful” – Janee Hurley
  • “Dedication and compassion of staff.  I was ready to quit but after talking with Michelle and Dan I decided to stick it out!” – Paul Stark
  • “The whole week was a great learning experience…” – Anisa Chambers
  • “Re-learning good information to put to current use..” – Patricia Lyons
  • “Facing our fears…” - Lateah Johnson
