Full Interview:

: What led you to reach out to OOD for services?

A: To help find a job

Q: Why is it important to you to have a job?

A: It’s important for me to get a job to have experience so that I can one day achieve my goal to become a nurse’s assistant.

Q: How is getting/having a job going to change your life?

A: Getting a job will help me get a house, a car and start my life as an adult.

Q: What challenges or problems did you have to face to get your job?

A: It was hard to learn to use Indeed/the internet to find a job, and learn how to answer interview questions.

Q: How did Greenleaf help you with these challenges?

A: My job developer, Rose, helped me by teaching me how to answer interview questions. The most helpful thing she taught me was how to speak up for myself and get what I want/need.

Q: What advice would you give to others who are nervous about looking for a job and working?

A: I would tell someone who is nervous about finding a job to practice, practice practice their interview questions. Keeping your body active (like doing Zumba!) can help with the stress too.
