Jasmine Seabrooks enrolled in the Centralina WDB funded NEXGEN services with Salisbury-Rowan Community Action Agency (SRCAA) in March 2015. She was interested in earning her GED and gaining work experience. What she got was a lot more than that!
Jasmine gained work experience through a limited internship, working in the Mayor's office in the Town of East Spencer as a clerical assistant. She stated that the skills she learned in the leadership session, "Essential Interviewing and Mock Interviews" helped her to be prepared when she was called for an interview at Freightliner. In August 2015, Jasmine was hired as a full-time employee with Freightliner in Cleveland NC.
Jasmine plans to continue her academic studies by doing work at home to obtain her GED. Jasmine's career goal is to become a lawyer for the military.
Jasmine is a shining example of what the Centralina WDB and its network of NEXGEN service providers do on a regular basis to ensure that our local employers have a great, ready to work talent pipeline for now and years to come.
