“HEAR FROM OUR CLIENTS”
The program brought a lot of insight to me on deciding what I should do. It taught me to set goals and most of all to stay focus.
I would like to thank Ms. Lewis for her guidance and career assessment along the way.
I learned a lot in the program (setting short/long goals, how to do a resume, cover letter and interviewing skills. I am happy that I have accomplished a lot as I searched for employment.
Thank you, Pinellas County Urban League.
This program has made me see that I can do anything if I believe I can. I enrolled in a CNA and passed. I learn a lot about myself in the program. I found a job making more money because of the certification.
