employeeMichael is 33 years old with a documented learning disability and asthma. When Michael came to EmployAbilities he was looking for either a full-time or part-time position in the customer service industry since he had eight years of experience in this area. Michael had been looking for work for several weeks without any success and was becoming frustrated.

EmployAbilities’ Employment Coach assisted Michael with resume development, mock interviews, job search techniques and completing job applications. Michael was also encouraged to attend workshops. As Michael’s self-esteem and confidence level increased he became more positive that he would soon find suitable employment. The Employment Coach worked with Michael for several months and Michael was ultimately successful in finding a full-time position in the customer service industry clerk at the Italian Centre Shop.

Michael continues to be successful in his new position. EmployAbilities has received several phone calls from Michael’s manager and supervisor commenting positively on his commitment to doing a great job and his strong work ethic. Michael has spoken with the Employment Coach several times since starting his new position, which he enjoys very much.
