East Bay – Follow Up = Continued Partnership
Liz and the team at WOU have done a great job providing me with quality part time employees. They always follow up to make sure the employees they work with are doing their jobs well. I will continue to work with WOU for my hiring needs.
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this testimonial for Jonathan Marshall from WOU. I have known Jonathan since October 2017, as a Career Resource Specialist, for Work Opportunities Unlimited, a job placement contract for the Mass Rehab Commission in Greenfield, MA. Jonathan has proved himself to be a perceptive, patient, and effective. He offers his clients sound vocational rehabilitation direction that is quite effective in helping them to focus on realistic vocational goals. He is comfortable working with individuals with a wide range of disabilities. In particular, his calm, accepting, and patient approach has made him successful in working with individuals who have interpersonal problems and anxiety. I have had the opportunity to observe Jonathan while he was working with individuals with disabilities. I found that he has an approachable and directive style. He is able to put his clients at ease immediately. One of his clients gave this quote about Jonathan, “He is very professional and a joy to work with.”
Jonathan has brought creative thinking to his position as Career Resource Specialist. He is skillful at problem solving and finding innovative solutions to employment barriers. He has built strong relationships with local employers. He has proven himself to be a strong advocate for people with disabilities. It is obvious that Jonathan cares about improving their quality of life.
Making a Difference, One Person at a Time
I just wanted to follow up after our meeting last week regarding Ter Yang.
As you are aware, when we met with Ter for the first time last year, he was extremely reluctant to engage in services. He hadn’t received services since he left high school and he seemed to be very worried about going out into the community, meeting new people, and work in general. I was so pleased at last week’s ISP to see how far he has come. I noticed that he was happier, more talkative and genuinely proud of his ability to work. Your team has done an amazing job, working with Lowe’s management to smooth out any difficulties, and to ensure his success.
I want to thank you for a job well done, and for making a difference in this young man’s life.
