Tonight, Sam took another step, without DARS, in his job hunt. He updated his resume.
It was a nice thing to add, that section of work experience, describing how he built gaming computers for clients who would use them to design games and applications, all part of his internship.
Gary Moore, with nonPareil Institute, told me last week that he got a call from Goodwill. They were looking for workers who could help them rebuild Dell Computers. It would be great work for Sam. But the workshop was in Oak Cliff.
Commuting to nonPareil was already a real reach. He can't commute to South Dallas. Gary said he'd keep his ears and eyes open, and remember us and send us referrals when the work was north of the Mason-Dixon line.
Sam registered with the Texas Workforce Commission, and we've been checking job boards.
I hope this doesn't get discouraging, but I fear it will.
