Jeff's New Purpose

  Jeff knew he would face some tough challenges in his job search. Last October, he was unexpectedly laid off after eight years as a warehouse laborer. Before that, he worked in construction.
   “Physically, I knew I couldn’t do that kind of work anymore,” said Jeff, who is in his late 50s.
   Today, Jeff is working as a human services representative with Hennepin County, and he has a whole new sense of purpose.

Imagine walking into that same interview and having to speak a language that isn’t your first. Imagine not being able to read or calculate something because you do not understand what’s written. Imagine not knowing what to say or how interviews are conducted because in your country you obtain a job through a friend or family member and then you just show up and begin working.  When …
