Thrive in Retirement with OCCK
David started working with Workforce Solutions in September. He was ready to get back into the workforce. He had previous experience working in restaurants and was interested in doing that type of work again. David was particular about what hours he wanted to work because a work life balance was very important to him. David enjoys playing bingo and is also an author. Having time to continue doing those activities was crucial to David. The Employment Consultant and David worked together to find a job that he would enjoy that would work around his schedule. We also worked on job readiness skills in order to overcome the current barriers that he was facing. In November, we found that perfect fit! David went to an interview at McDonald’s and was hired on the spot! He was ecstatic! David has learned how to run the grill and the fryer. He is open to learning new tasks in this role as well. David has a wonderful manager at McDonald’s. She thinks outside the box, has a positive outlook, and is supportive to all of the employees that she manages. This has helped David to shine in this role. She said that she enjoys having David on the team. Congratulations David, we are very proud of you!
