Recently my position was eliminated (after 11 years) due to a company buyout. It is tough to find work in Florida and since I do not have any formal education in the field I had been working in, my opportunities are few and far between. I have been blown away by the seminars and training programs WorkNet Pinellas has to offer! The ‘Job Power’ seminar given by Bill McMichael was very enlightening and helpful. Bill made us feel comfortable and gave us great tips going forward in our job search. Stephanie Freeman gave an excellent seminar called Targeting Your Employment Transition that also included creating a resume. This was very helpful since I had never written a resume! Currently I am working with a WIA career counselor Patty Irving. Patty has been very informative, friendly and helpful. She has guided me in finding training and is assisting me on getting a grant so I can get the training needed to become gainfully employed through the WIA Program. Thank you so much WorkNet Pinellas. Without these seminars and programs I do not know what I would have done. You have given me hope and the tools to not only become gainfully employed but also opened a door to a career I can be proud of!!!! – Tracy Buncich
