YAKIMA Success Stories
Succeeding against all odds
Michael came to Compass for employment assistance in July. He is a single father who has struggled with challenges related to his mental health and substance abuse. As a result, he was referred to Compass Career Solutions by a partner agency and met with an Employment Consultant, Adalis. The two of them worked together to craft a resume and submit applications to jobs that would be a good fit for Michael.
From unemployed to A job he loves!
Andrew was unemployed and he had faced a lot of challenges finding work. Part of the problem was that he didn’t feel confident about his skills in submitting his resume and landing a job. He was at one of Compass Career Solutions partner agencies when he saw a flyer about our Employment Services.
Gaining Confidence and landing her first job!
Annalyssa was filled with anxiety and was having a really difficult time. She started talking to her doctor about it and the doctor referred her to Compass Career Solutions for assistance.
A NEW Job for Maggie
Maggie came to Compass Career Solutions for job placement services through vocational rehabilitation. We helped her build a resume, write a cover letter, and submit job applications. She was looking for a part-time position working in customer service, since she always liked working with people.
