Reginald from Chicagol, IL

I'm a veteran ready to work in the IT field. Need essential equipment to start work.

Meeting this need will allow me to start work. I need equipment to work from home due to my two artificial hips and severe osteoarthritis in my back.

My need and situation

I am a Marine Corps disabled veteran, with two honorable discharges. I have two artificial hips, and I am currently unemployed. I am also, currently at Center for Changing Lives training program studying to get my CompTIA A+ certification, which is an entry level certification that will allow me to enter the IT field.

My goals are to be fully financial independent, so I can be a productive member of society. I plan to do this by obtaining my A+ certification, which will make me marketable in the IT field. And I will be able to get a good-paying job.

I need a printer, router, and a decent office chair. I have the opportunity to work form home, but before I apply i need to ensure that I have the proper equipment that the company requires.

Meeting this need will help me because it would allow me to be able to work from home. This is a great opportunity for me due to my two artificial hips and severe osteoarthritis in my back.

I have been working with Reginald since August of 2016, in that time Reginald has remained extremely dedicated to a very rigorous program. For the past 5 months Reginald has been attending class M-TH from 10am-2pm. If he were to obtain a printer router and chair, it would help him gain employment in the IT field, the Industry he has been studying to get into. Next month Reginald will take his A+ exam to gain the A+ certification, and it would be fantastic if he could gain employment shortly after completing the program.
