This is the job I really needed. I have the perfect job now.

– Josie, Banking and Finance Training graduate

For Josie, having a job means more than a paycheck. A better job means more opportunities for her 4-year-old daughter, Marisa. Josie came to Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota seeking a better job with daytime hours so she could feed her daughter dinner and tuck her in at night. Overnight and weekend shifts also made it difficult to find childcare. “It was hard to find someone to watch Marisa,” she says. “Kids grow a lot. I needed the extra income to buy coats and boots and all the other things that she needs, but I only had retail experience, so it was hard for me to get any [other] kind of job. I kept wondering what I was doing wrong.” Josie enrolled in our Banking and Finance Training program. Shortly after graduation, Bremer Bank hired her as a teller. Now, Josie picks up Marisa after work in time for dinner and bedtime.
