SUCCESS STORIES
“I wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to the AMAZING staff at the WORKFORCE Center here in Grand Junction, Colorado!!! Especially, Ms . Kasey Watts, Employment Specialist. I had the great pleasure of coming to the Workforce Center while searching for employment. I had not searched for employment for 8 years, and  Ms. Kasey was there from step one, guiding me every step of the way! Hearing from others in the community that the workforce center provided outstanding tools to those searching for employment, I would stop by the Workforce Center and ask for help. Ms Kasey helped me from everything to checking my cover letter and resume, to teaching a class about essential  Tools in job searching, and lastly, setting up, conducting and advising me through a mock group interview. I now am employed through Mesa County Department of Human Services and wanted to say a special THANK YOU to Ms. Kasey Watts and the incredible staff at the Workforce Center!!! She was ever so positive, encouraging me throughout the entire job searching process! Your help  and guidance has greatly changed my life!!!   Kelly from Grand Junction, Colorado.”
