Anna Doan- VESL Office Skills Summer 2008
Anna enrolled in the Office Skills Training program with a diverse work history. She spent several years doing assembly work and working with machines and computers. Her goals and personality were well matched with a job interacting with people and offering customer service. She used the training and her internship at the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) to build upon these skills and improve her competitiveness in the job market. After months of job search, Anna was hired by the Oregon Employment Department as a Business and Employment Specialist. She is currently on the Welcome Team at SE Works, utilizing her English/Vietnamese bilingual skills to serve customers and the community. She feels that the opportunity she had with Career Pathways opened this door for her.
