Pottstown Works taught me how to pursue a job while looking at my professional skills. I got help putting together my cover letter, resume, and practicing my interview skills. [I’ve] become more confident in myself. I really appreciate the Pottstown Works program for helping me achieve the goals I had trouble doing on my own. (Ashley Feb. 2021)
I participated in a work program at Pottstown Works. William MacGregor was very helpful. He helped me to develop a resume after not having had one over 20 years, and to improve my interviewing skills. I work now at Wonderspring Daycare. (Donna Nov 2020)
