My Son had the privilege of having Wendy as a Job Coach and she did not play around; she came in and did her job in less than two weeks. She found my son a great job, and I applaud her. I never did get the chance to meet her, and I do apologize for not just let her know that I am pleased with the work she did with my son. I'm amazed because the other Job Coach, from a different provider, had 8 months and did absolutely nothing. Wendy was great. I would recommend her for a raise. Thank you all.
I wanted to reach out and inform you of one of your employees, Keith Howell (Employment Specialist). I recently had the pleasure of being introduced to him, as he is assisting me in employment. I can always count on him to be there, going way above and beyond what is expected of him. He cares about his clients makes it his priority to attend to their every need, regardless of how big or small. He truly has a heart of gold. He has a passion for his job and his clients - it shows in everything he does.
I can assure you he is definitely an asset to your company, and I know Vocation Depot wouldn’t be what it is without people like him. - Catherine
This letter is in praise of your employee, Damaris Rosales. Her work with my granddaughter, Denise Smalls, in securing employment has always been positive and encouraging. I do appreciate her manner in addressing Denise's concerns and limitations in entering the workforce. Denise has a goal of becoming an assistant teacher and working with adolescents in a school or Daycare environment.
Indeed posted a position to join their janitorial staff with Winthrop Charter Schools in Riverview, Florida. Denise inquired about the position and forwarded her resume to Winthrop Charter School in need of immediate income. She received a response for an interview, and the information was forwarded to her job coach. Ms. Rosales accompanied Denise on the interview at Winthrop Charter Schools. The interviewer, Mr. Daniel Berkowitz, Facilities Supervisor, did hire Denise as part of their janitorial staff, part-time, and showed great interest in her desire to obtain her license as an assistant teacher. Mr. Berkowitz offered Denise a position as an assistant teacher when she obtained her license. My praise for Damaris Rosales is the best. Ms. Rosales reached out to Denise at every step of the hiring process, recognizing the potential of Denise obtaining her original goal. That included all paperwork required and fingerprinting to the acceptance of Winthrop's offering letter. There were a few "hiccups" that occurred during the application process; however, Ms. Rosales immediately intervened and worked with Denise to obtain a satisfactory resolution.
