“I am a mother of 3 and have been a stay at home mom for the last 5 years as I found it redundant to work to only be able to pay for someone else to watch my children. My children have finally all reached school age this year and I was ready to return to the work force. I set out on my own to find employment but much has changed since the days of turning in paper applications face to face with a prospective employer. I found myself looking into employment agencies with my name on a long list waiting to get a call for an interview. A close friend then suggested I try the Sutter County One Stop and I was introduced to Jessica Diaz. She and I sat down for a meeting for her to get an idea of what I’ve done for employment in the past and what I would like to do moving forward. Before I knew it, I had a polished resume and Jessica went to work finding me employers that I would be a good fit with. Each employer and interview I was set up with was professional as well as somewhere I could imagine myself working for. Although I didn’t get the first or even the second job I interviewed for, I got some much needed practice interviewing as it had been years since I’d sat for one. Eventually I met with my now employers for an interview one morning, and it was an instant perfect fit for them and myself alike. I couldn’t be happier with the work Jessica and the Sutter County One Stop has done for me, I don’t remember ever loving a job like I love my job now. Thank you for all your help Jessica!!”
