This was another one- of- those-slow-weeks. There were no new clients as such so Tuesday and Wednesday ( days we help clients with job readiness, applications and resumes) was activity free. As one of my colleagues told an employment specialist, we're open for business! So what did we do? This week we searched for schools where clients can take classes and learn new skills - I learned that you can get a degree in carpentry-. Hopefully that pans out well. A few clients also came in for the food handlers card.
Monday was a different story. I requested for some interpreters over the weekend to help with the clients that would come in on Monday. Somehow the request was not processed and so we had no interpreters for some of the clients and these clients came in by 9am. Thankfully, I was able to speak to my colleague who orders the interpreters and she saved the day. Monday's class started late but it went well and I was grateful.
Lesson learned: Follow up on your responsibilities (that's one of the first lessons you learn in school and at work) and why I did not do that last week beats me. I got lucky and I realized that I may not be that lucky next time.
