I would like to thank A4TD for their help in helping me find a job. Their association with VDOL was a great help with resumes, computer skills and interviewing. Training Center Staff was instrumental in finding the positions. Seeing that a new business was opening up in the area, she decided to stop in and put in a pitch for A4TD. I’m sure A4TD will be of great help to you as they were to me.
I like my new job. I like helping people. I like that I am needed. I feel pride and responsibility. That's huge.
Associates for Training and Development supported my steps into the job market with skills for the job search process, which aided my self-confidence and established those necessary work references, and I thank you. Paradoxically, the exposure to the job world, as it jolted my sensibilities, has motivated me to refine my education and shoot for a more meaningful outcome. Again, I am sincerely grateful for the part A4TD has played in facilitating my return to the mainstream.
These people helped me realize that being over 55 could be the beginning of something very good. I was pumped with a new resolve to get out there and make things better in my life. I am now an Administrative Assistant and like my job very much. I am earning enough that I am able to keep my home from foreclosure. Slowly but surely I am paying off all my old debts, no longer need food stamps and I truly feel good about myself again. Thanks A4TD!
When I was younger I thought work was a chore. Now I think it's a privilege. I love my job and I love that I can still do it! Keeping my mind and body active is who I am. They support that.
Thanks again, for all the fine work you do helping people improve their skills, and getting back in the workforce.
A4TD was more than just a life boat to me. It gave me new perspectives. It brought out new abilities. It buoyed my spirits. It landed me on a new shore.
When I first started with the SCSEP I didn’t feel that I had any purpose at all. Now I enjoy going to my host site every day. I love it. The program is really good, got me more stable financially and emotionally. There’s hope again in my life.
I would like to thank everyone involved with placing me in current job. I am so thankful there was a program like this one to see me through some very lean and tough times.
This program is a godsend! It turned me around financially and it has also made me feel happier and it forces me to try new things. For me going to work is a huge part of staying healthy and happy.
You were available when I needed encouragement and support, answering many questions and passing on leads for work that might lead to a full time job. It was in gratitude that I have learned so much more than if I had not had the opportunity of working with you.
I have seen the SCSEP do wonderful things in my community in Vermont. It revitalizes seniors, nonprofits, and whole towns.
I was having a problem with the program and I felt really frustrated. I called my case manager at A4TD and the problem was addressed immediately. I was so pleased. I feel like I can talk to them and the people there will keep their word.
The SCSEP program is very helpful in VT. Helps a lot of seniors make ends meet, and helps give them some options for the future.
At the age of 59 years old, I suddenly found myself out of work and no longer in demand in my former profession. I knew I needed to find another skill set so that I could be hired in a field that was more widely available.
