Career Development and Job Placement Spotlight

Mary S. has become Career Development & Job Placement’s latest success story. Ms. Stroggins, who has neurological impairments caused by arthritis and rheumatism, came to The Arc Mid-South in October after being referred by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. Our job readiness class helped her prepare a resume, then taught Ms. Stroggins, 58, how to apply for employment online. The instruction paid off when APS Janitorial Service hired her to work at the Memphis Convention Center. “She was really happy because she has been looking for work since 2010,” said Angela Hudson, Employment Coordinator.
