“When I moved my family to Casper, the only thing I had was the kids and our clothes. I was really scared about what was happening and where we would end up. Climb saved us. I had been working in fast food and was ready to get out of that and a string of dead-end jobs that wouldn’t support my kids. Climb taught me a lot that I didn’t know about the workforce.
I had never done a resume or had a formal job interview. I’m in my dream job now. I’ve earned several raises as my company has seen my skills and work ethic. I have a lot of responsibility as I run the plant’s operations. I feel great that when my kids are older and they’ve seen all my hard work, it will help them when they go through hard times. We’re really moving up, and it’s exciting.”
