Help When Needed
“Not only did DI accommodate my hectic schedule, but they cared about me as an individual.”
My experience at Deseret Industries has been amazing! I accepted a position with DI when I needed a job to support my family while I completed an associate's degree in medical specialties. When I started working, I thought it would simply be a job that could accommodate my crazy school hours. I soon discovered it would be so much more. Not only did DI accommodate my hectic schedule, but they cared about me as an individual. I was struggling in math and they tutored me. When it was time for the state exam, they found someone to help me prepare. Then, when I was ready to seek employment in my field, they helped me.
My job coach trainer encouraged me to apply for a seminar offered through a local healthcare company for those interested in pursuing medical careers. After writing an essay about why I thought I was a good candidate for their program, I was accepted. I soon discovered that upon completion of the program, there would be a place waiting for me in their medical assistant program. I was quickly offered a position with my own doctor.
This experience would not have been possible without the help I received from Deseret Industries. I now find myself ready to face the future with a new sense of confidence that would not have been possible if it had not been for the support I found through this wonderful program. One of DI’s marketing campaign slogans is, “Giving stuff a second chance”, but what they are really doing is giving people a second chance.
