Theresa Sanders first visited a Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation (DESC) One-Stop Service Center in December 2014 seeking employment assistance after being let go from her previous employer.
She attended orientation and then met with her career advisor, Shanna Young, to discuss how DESC could help her find employment. During this meeting, Ms. Sanders’ resume, previous employment, skills, and career goals were discussed. Shanna determined that Ms. Sanders was employment ready and referred her to attend recruitment events.
Ms. Sanders was referred to a recruitment event for Henry Ford Health System being held by Business Account Representative Twanna Tidwell. Ms. Sanders was hired and as of mid-June, she has become a permanent employee.
Ms. Sanders did state that even though her new position as a Customer Service Representative is a pay cut, it’s a better environment and not just a job, but a career. She is looking to build longevity with her new employer and sees herself advancing in her role within the next year. From the time Ms. Sanders came into DESC, she expressed nothing short of a positive attitude and determination, which is definitely key in seeking employment.
“I am surprised at how quickly DESC has been able to find me employment and very thankful for the help and service provided by Ms. Young and Ms. Tidwell.” – Theresa Sanders
