Two years ago, when Bradley first came to the ASD Adult Achievement Center, he wanted to contribute to something beyond himself. He wanted a job. He never had a job before, and wasn’t sure where to start. As anyone who has been on the job hunt knows, it can be overwhelming. Where do you look for a job? What do you write on your resume? How do you ace the interview questions?
He took the first step and enrolled in the Career Success Shop program. The program provides career coaching and training to learn the necessary job search skills, interview skills and resume building skills. But before he even started, he had to adjust his mindset. Bradley is smart and witty, but struggled believing it was possible. “I felt like I couldn’t bring anything to the table,” said Bradley. “But Paula and the ASD Adult Achievement Center was great for emotional support, inspiring a positive attitude, and encouragement.”
Now Bradley is working with Jewish Academy of Orlando and Jewish Family Services. You can find him in the library or answering questions at the front desk. He is continuing to hone his career skills while he gains experience. A self proclaimed computer and all-things-tech lover, he would love to work in the technology industry in the future. It is exciting to see how far Bradley has come, and when he talks about the last two years, you can clearly see where he is headed!
