    “No matter what the situations or trials you go through, never give up. This is one of the most exciting feelings I’ve felt! To get my GED, you have to have a lot of self-motivation and a team of people who care about you.”

  • “Everyone at PA CareerLink® was very helpful – they are very experienced in what they do. I received help with writing my resume, and now when I present it to a company, they like how well it is written and it helps get me interviews. When I go to the PA CareerLink®, I feel welcome and I know that someone is always there to help. […] The outcome of my job search was that I got the interviews and the job that I wanted. Now I know what to expect if I am searching for a job again.”
