Succeeding at Work

This month, we want to share Spring’s story. Spring is 18 years old and was referred to our Employment Services Program from the Texas Workforce Commission for job skills training and job placement in November 2020. Right away, we focused on Spring’s gifts and career goals and worked closely with her to find her desired role. We provided her training instruction on job searching, resume creating, interviewing skills, and mock interviewing.

Following the training, she accepted a role at Embassy Suites in April 2020. After a few months of job experience, she decided to take her skillset and transfer industries from the hotel/hospitality industry to the restaurant industry. She accepted a role with Panera Bread in June 2020. She has thrived, and we are so grateful to play a part in her career journey in the restaurant industry. We continue to stay closely involved in supporting her in her new role.

Over the last several months, we have grown our employer and client base to ensure we find ideal jobs for individuals with autism. For more information about Employment Services, please contact Crosby Hebert.
