Esmeralda enrolled in Career Link in February 04, 2019 and graduated with Employment on 7/31/19! When Esmeralda first came she was a very shy person with no expectations to find a job soon. After Career Link Orientation, Esmeralda was immediately interested in the program. She wanted to work in a office environment or a clinic. Esmeralda was assigned to start the next week at NM Family Services; this is a clinic in Sunland Park, NM.


Every week Esmeralda was learning new skills and showing improvement. She started helping filing documents, and the entering information in the computer. She learned how to do billing and coding and reviewing Patients Applications for services. Esmeralda also went for a “Peer Support Counseling Training” in Albuquerque, NM. She is now scheduled to take a test to obtain certification in this area. Esmeralda is also pending to start our “TANF VT” Program. She wants to obtain a Nursing Assistant Certification. After graduating from Career Link; Esmeralda was hired to work for her work site! Yay! She was offered a full time job with the possibility of promotion after obtaining her “Peer Support Certification”. She was also very happy to receive employment support services for her new job. Esmeralda loves working helping others to achieve their personal goals. She now feels complete and is very grateful for this great opportunity!
