Patrick from Chicago, IL

I just need an Illinois State Driver's License in order to start work!

Having a driver's license and getting the railroad position I've applied for is the next step to getting sustainable employment.

My need and situation

I am a 45- year old veteran. I am currently unemployed and looking for work.

My goals are to have sustainable, full-time employment and be an asset to society. I already have permanent housing and would like to get back to work.

I need an IL State Driver's License in order to obtain a railroad position to which I have applied. They have expressed great interest in having me work there but all I need is a driver's license to get started.

Meeting this need will help me because having a driver's license and getting this railroad position is the next step to getting sustainable employment.
