When Tara Mae Jackson came to VR, she did not like to socialize with others. Her severe anxiety made it difficult to walk to the end of her driveway to get the mail. She credits VR with helping her learn to “come out of her shell” and self-advocate. In addition to job readiness training, VR also helped her obtain her driver’s license, GED, and Career Readiness Certificate.
The Gaffney VR Office recently held a “What to Wear” fashion show for clients. Staff members demonstrated a variety of appropriate attire for different jobs, including an office environment, a plant or production setting, a fast food establishment, and a restaurant.
SC Works Upstate and the VR Gaffney Area Office & Work Training Center will host a job fair at the Broad River Electric facility on October 18th, 2016.
