With Practice Comes Results
"I had little to no work experience."
I had little to no work experience. Having no luck at all in my job search for over three months, I finally talked with my bishop. He helped me through a referral to the Deseret Industries training program.
The experience I gained at Deseret Industries not only included job training and customer service skills, but improved my self-confidence. My job coaches are what helped me the most. They were patient and supportive. One challenge I faced was time management. On several occasions, I would clock in late. After a little while my job coach asked me if I was having trouble getting to work or if everything was OK. I stepped up and got myself to work on time so I wouldn’t let him down. Through my experience at DI, I have learned time management skills and patience, teamwork and leadership. I have memorized my “Me in 30 Seconds,” and have gained a level of self-confidence to help me stay strong during interviews. I have made changes in how I carry myself. The DI program taught me that with practice comes a result.
I would recommend Deseret Industries to anyone who needs help in finding employment. Through the DI program I found a new job which I am confident will help me in my field of study. I am grateful I had the opportunity to learn from the DI program.
