Jackson has been working in a laboratory for a few months now and provided us with this awesome self portrait.
Jackson says that “Having a job is important to me because it grants me independence and gives me a sense of purpose.”
Here’s the full interview:
Q: What led you to reach out to OOD for services?
A: I had been searching for a way to start my career and start it well with a solid foundation.
Q: Why is it important to you to have a job?
A: Having a job is important to me because it grants me independence and gives me a sense of purpose.
Q: How is getting/having a job going to change your life?
A: Having a job will not only allow me to make money, but learn and gain experience and skills, some of which may even be applicable to everyday life outside of my job.
Q: What challenges or problems did you have to face to get your job?
A: I had to wait for a while for a position to open up for me, as I was very eager to get started.
Q: How did Greenleaf help you with these challenges?
A: Greenleaf helped me by exposing me to a few different work environments, allowing me to see which I found to be the most suitable.
Q: What advice would you give to others who are nervous about looking for a job and working?
A: I would let them know that it’s okay to be nervous, and that I was too. I have found that working is an opportunity to gain experience and learn new things, and I’m confident that it would be the same case for them; it’s all a matter of what they find most suitable, and Greenleaf allows them the time and resources to figure that
