Job Success

ZR's Story 

"The Workforce Resource Center helped me recognize my worth and gave me the hope and inspiration that I'd be able to restart my medical career in the United States. The staff were very helpful and supportive. Their support helped me believe in myself and build up my confidence. I was a physician in my former country. Once I came to the United States, I stayed at home with my kids as a housewife because my English wasn't strong enough to seek a job. Now, I am currently working as a Medical Assistant in a doctor’s office after taking courses at Northern Virginia Community College. I would 100% recommend the Workforce Resource Center to a friend. I had lost myself, but found myself in the Workforce Resource Center."

Thank you to the 12 WRC customers who reported their job successes last month with local employers such as, Lowes, Iron Pony, Maximus, Lansdowne Resort and Spa, Allied Universal and Loudoun Physical Therapy.
