Workforce Development Program Success in Philadelphia

In the Dominican Republic, Arelis Nunez worked as a hospital nurse. After moving to Philadelphia, she looked for employment for over a year. Upon receiving advice on her resume and attending an interview workshop at PA CareerLink® Philadelphia, Ms. Nunez started getting invited to not one, but three local hospitals for interviews. “In the interview workshop I learned what to do in an interview and how to handle a phone interview. I felt more confident.” Shortly thereafter, Ms Nunez accepted a position at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
