Success Stories


Spokane County

Recap from last years success story -

Christina is a hardworking, devoted worker and eager to learn. ENSO has been working with Christina for several years through employment and most recently searching for new employment and gaining social skills. Christina is a person of few words, so it took time for Christina to talk and communicate what she likes and wants to do. Working with Able Opportunities on Christina’s video resume helped build a solid communication relationship between Christina and ENSO.

Now –

Using the skills she learned from putting together her video resume and using it in mock interviews…

Christina began working for Fred Meyer using the Work Autonomy application on an iPad. She quickly understood the technology and used the task list in the app to learn her tasks quicker. Before any time at all, Christina new her schedule completely! She worked hard, and continues to work hard every day. The staff and management at Fred Meyer is constantly saying how great Christina is at her job, how quickly and efficiently she performs her tasks, and how great she is to be around. She is, and will continue to be, a very valued employee of Fred Meyer.

Rebecca came to ENSO hoping to salvage her job at a local Coffee Roaster. She was responsible for filling orders for packaged coffee. Rebecca had been on the job for about a year when her management changed. Her hours were cut and she was subsequently asked not to participate in lunch or breaks with co-workers.

After working with ENSO it was decided Rebecca wanted a change. Her ideal job was to work in an office setting. Rebecca worked with her ENSO staff to create a resume and cover letter and practice her interview skills.

Just about a month after leaving her job at the Coffee Roaster. Rebecca interviewed for an office assistant job with Benaroya Research Institute. She was offered the job and currently is working three days at 12 hours a week.

Jose Ramon's job duties include sanitizing the clip boards, cleaning the children's area which includes the table and sanitizing the books.
