Gloria - Walk-in
Gloria, age 44, was a walk-in to the employment services office in Kansas one recent morning. With her fiancee in jail, she became homeless but possessed a fire in her belly to do all she needed to do to get work and keep things together. Very quickly she got a list of production and warehouse employers on the bus line and took to getting her applications in. She got 4 interviews off the bat and talked her way into being hired at a candle company as a production lead, based on past experience. To start the job she needs sturdy work shoes and a monthly bus pass.
