U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Kim was an unemployed homemaker and mother of two who had been out of the workforce for four years. Her last job was as a Food Service Worker at a local elementary school. Kim had to resign from the position because she could no longer be on her feet all day. However, Kim needed to return to the workforce as soon as possible to earn an income to support herself but didn’t know what she wanted to do.
Kim reached out to Denise Myhrberg, Workforce Development Specialist at CareerForce Worthington for help with her resume. Denise worked with Kim, then referred her to Rebecca Kaas, Veterans Employment Representative at CareerForce in Marshall. Kim said, “Rebecca was understanding and patient. She listened to me, was compassionate about my situation, and took my preferences and limitations into consideration.”
