Success Story: Nah
Armed with her MBA and impressive credentials, Nah spent two years searching and applying for jobs to no avail. As her situation began to appear hopeless, she prayed for help. That same day, she heard about Goodwill’s job training program and was soon attending the intensive Banking & Customer Service Training program. She says, “With my MBA, many people thought I was overqualified for the program, but I disagreed. I had plenty of knowledge and education, but I needed more practical skills for the banking industry.”
Nah interviewed with a renewed sense of confidence and soon landed a position as an Outreach Specialist at Carolinas HealthCare System that incorporated both her education and the practical work skills she learned through Goodwill. She’s a prime example of how more and more highly educated people are choosing Goodwill to sharpen their skills and better prepare for today’s workforce.
“Goodwill is a magical place,” says Nah. “Something happens to you here. You don’t go out the same. I will advise anyone to come taste it for yourself.”
For her career success, Nah was awarded a Good Work! Award at Goodwill’s 2014 Cornerstone Celebration.
