Kennewick Success Stories
With the help of compass career solutions
a career was made
I started with Compass in October 2018, with my employment consultant Eliza. When I first came in I believed I was going to get a job that I have been asking for, a Monday thru Friday sit down office job. Eliza heard me out and said that if we worked as a team that we would be able to accomplish what I wanted to do. We applied for jobs that I had my eyes on and with the help of Eliza all the jobs were I thought I couldn't apply to were in my reach.
A mother's determination despite her barrier proves to an employer she can be a great employee
When I was approved for supported employment through Compass Career Solutions, my life was so broken. I was living in the women’s homeless shelter with my 7 year old and 1 year old daughters. We had been there 6 months and when my employment consultant called me to let me know I was approved, I just couldn’t make it to the Compass office in Kennewick without me and my girls going hungry all day.
