Julia was referred to Jobs U Make Possible, LLC (aka JUMP) from Kansas Rehabilitation Services for Job Preparation Services and later for Customized Placement Services.
Julia had been unemployed since 2005 raising her daughter since relocating to Wichita from western Kansas. She had many years of work experience in western Kansas but limited in Wichita.
During Job Preparation Services we updated her resume, practiced interviews, provided her with tools to reduce her anxieties and increase her coping skills since she identified these as issues she had in the past. We also helped her research industry standards in child care, which was her job interest. Since
she had been out of the industry for so long, she needed to be aware of the current industry standards.
Julia spent about 3 months in Job Preparation Services and once we had accomplished all of our objectives we moved on to Customized Placement Services. During Customized Placement we helped her apply for jobs and connected her with employers who were in the childcare industry. Within a few months Julia had an opportunity to interview at with a child care
center where she was hired. She also works part time at Chuck E Cheese where she is a Character.
She enjoys working with children again. She recently received a raise, became Employee of the Month at Chuck E Cheese and has moved into her own apartment with her daughter.
We really enjoyed watching Julia prosper in her work goals and are so happy for her.
