Overcoming Your Barriers
Kerith was looking for work for about 7 months. Then, after connecting with her employment specialist, she learned about a job lead Linkages had just shared on behalf of one of their business partners. Knowing the lead came from Linkages, Kerith applied to White Stallion Ranch. Then came the tough part, Kerith followed up on her application, which had always been difficult due to her social anxiety.
Not only did Kerith overcome this barrier, but she landed the job with White Stallion Ranch as a dishwasher. She started in April and Kerith said the people she works with are wonderful and make the time fly by.
Since finding employment Kerith feels less tension at home and a steady income is wonderful. Her advice for fellow job seekers is to remember not to take it too personally if an employer says their job is not the right fit. Even if it is the 100th time, there is a job out there for everyone.
