Reaching for Your Dream

After trying for months to find a decent job, and running into roadblock after roadblock, Marcus finally began working with Major his Employment Specialist at EMPACT. He visited the DREAM job fair in Casa Grande at St. Anthony of Padua Community Center on September 2nd. At the Job fair, there were several employers, many of whom requested that the applications be submitted online, while others actually had paper applications to be filled out on the spot. Marcus filled out every application that he could there, a total of 5, and within a week he received a call from Lone Butte Casino inviting him in for an interview. Marcus said, “The interview process went smoothly, as did the entire hiring process. Now I’m working a job that I enjoy and I’m on the road to reaching my goals in life.”
