Darren from Brooklyn, NY

Father of three, looking for work. I need a laptop to apply for jobs regularly.

I have experience in food service, but I've had a very hard time applying for work off of my phone. A laptop would be a big help!

My need and situation

I am a 31 yr. old, father of 3 with experience in food service. Before moving back to NY from Pennsylvania, I worked as a manager at a food chain restaurant. I have been trying to get a job but haven’t been able to create a resume.

My goals are to secure employment in the food industry which is what I have experience in, but haven’t been successful since I can only do so much on my phone.

I need a laptop so I can create a resume, search for work and apply for employment. If I have a laptop I would be able to do these things much more easily and faster than doing it on my phone.

Meeting this need will help me because i’d be able to create a resume, search for jobs much more easily and apply to them as well. Once i’ve secured employment, I will be able to provide for my children and take care of my self without the help of my parents.
