Client Success Story

Rick was a frustrated worker in a job that made him unhappy. Feeling stressed was a daily emotion. Both Rick's physical and mental health were deteriorating. While talking with his Case Manager at Solutions, it was learned that he could be referred to Tran$Em for support in obtaining alternative employment. In the past, Rick has always taken any job offered to him due to financial obligations. This time, he knew he wanted to work in food service and was not going to accept anything less than his dream. With the assistance of his Employment Specialist, Rick gained interview and social skills as well as a resume that scored him an interview at Concordia right away. Rick surpassed expectations at his interview and was offered a job as a Food Service/Prep Cook. Rick describes his job as serving and prepping lunches for students while following the food and drug administration guidelines. Rick's supervisor has appreciated his work ethic, positive attitude and willingness to do whatever is needed. Rick enjoys providing the students a healthy meal every day. Rick continued to receive supports from his Employment Specialist even after he started work by obtaining assistance with reporting his income to the Social Security Administration. Rick feels this job has given him the ROLL COBBS! freedom to express himself with food and utilize his creative side. He is able to make suggestions and voice his opinion. Rick is hopeful for the future and what opportunities he has as an employee of Concordia.
