Work History in a New Country
“I was unable to find work in areas where I had experience and work history”
I emigrated from England to join my beautiful wife in the United States. While I had a permit allowing me to work, I couldn’t find employment. For whatever reason, I was unable to find work in areas where I had experience and work history in England. I had not even received a reply from any of the positions I had applied for near where we lived, and as I didn’t have a car or driver’s license, I had very limited options. I had begun to feel despondent.
Eventually, I asked my bishop for his help. He gave me a referral to Deseret Industries. Shortly after, I was accepted into the training program and given the opportunity to gain experience and work history here in the United States. Deseret Industries also helped me obtain a driver’s license, and the extra income I earned allowed me to buy a car.
With these two very important goals marked off my list, I was taught how to create a resume and effectively present myself in an interview. Through networking opportunities within Deseret Industries, I am now in a permanent job.
Without the help, guidance, and support of the wonderful people at DI, I could not be where I am today.
