Chad was first placed at Pet Time for a work assessment. The owners of Pet Time were so impressed by Chad’s work ethic that they decided to hire him as an employee. I really appreciated the opportunity to work at Pet Time for the work assessment. I was very appreciative that they decided to hire me. I really enjoy learning about and working with all the animals, from fish to reptiles.
I am very appreciative of the assistance I received from JOVS and Vocation Rehabilitation to secure my position at Solvang Retirement Services.
Having been out of the workforce for 10 years I faced several challenges in finding desirable employment. Jul Orr Vocational Services found and arranged a month-long assessment in a family-owned silkscreen/ embroidery production shop which fit my dominant creative nature and appreciation of a variety of tasks. The assessment has led to part-time work in the shop that I find to be a constant learning experience and very fulfilling. Jul Orr Vocational Services focused on my individual strengths and through her network of contacts was able to place me perfectly. I am still in the “pinch me, so I know it’s real phase.”
Thank you Jul!
