“I was out of work for a while, and I was constantly applying and interviewing. After continuously doing the same things over and over, I was prepared to just give up, but I knew ultimately that it would not be in my best interest. Fortunately, I was able to find a work program because I was receiving SNAP. Upon entering the program, I was given more hope that I would be able to have success. I began interviewing with more companies and was very quickly sent on an interview with Conrad Hotel. I was offered an opportunity to work for them. It is definitely a wonderful job and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity. I am happy that I have begun my path to success and there is only one way from here, to the top. Overall, never give up, use the resources that are available, and remain positive.”
