Maya Eiland moved to Grandview at the beginning of the year from St. Louis when her family relocated. She began working with JobOne Careers in March of 2015 in our Employment Services Program. Maya had plans to continue her education by starting classes at Metropolitan Community College in the fall, but was very eager to have a summer job and gain her first work experience.
JobOne Careers worked with Maya to find a first job that would give her the flexibility to work over the summer and hopefully continue working when she started classes. Maya began working at Dollar General in Grandview in June of 2015 and is doing well. She did start classes in August and was able to negotiate her hours so that she could continue working as well. We are proud of Maya and all she has accomplished this year.
