My job title is Employment Services Manager. I have been at Jane Addams Resource Corporation since June 2010. My work involves preparing JARC's Manufacturing Program trainees for work by assisting with resume and cover letter writing, mock interviews and other work readiness barriers. What I like about my job is teaching Work Readiness Classes and interacting with our students daily.
Other positions I have held at my organization include Women in Manufacturing Program Coordinator and Senior Employment Coach. In the future, I would like to see more funding for job training programs and more women in advanced manufacturing!
