When I first started in the Dartmouth Work Activity Society program in 1992 it was the best thing I ever did. I was enrolled in Retail Sales and did a couple of placements however, since I took a clerical course after high school in Yarmouth I ended up on placement at the Employment Support Unit of DWAS. I was there for a few weeks and buggedColin to hire me on and he must have gotten tired of me asking because he ended up hiring me. I have been working as the Secretary for the Employment Support Unit since 1993 and here it is 2010 and I am still here. It is the longest job I have ever stayed at so I guess you know that I really enjoy it. The staff is great and I have seen a lot of participants come and go. I am truly grateful for being hired on and hope to stay here until I can’t work any longer.
