Hello, everyone! I just wanted to share how grateful I am for the Stand Up Chicago. The first time I visited this forum was because I was looking for a job and I wanted to find job opportunities for me here in Chicago. I was a fresh grad and I just moved here to be closer to my parents. Thankfully, I was able to find a new job easily with the help of this organization. It was indeed a struggle not to have a job for ourselves and our family. I lived alone but it was still very hard to sustain myself every day. There are just too many bills to pay that are a part of adult life. I had to be responsible and prove that I am finally independent but life was hard. However, I am glad that I saw this website and knew about this organization. They helped me find a job and now, I’m already working at a good paying company and I am happy with it. I hope this organization could help out more people in the future.
Hi, Trisha! I am so happy that you found a job you are happy with. I experienced the same thing as you. I didn’t have a job but the thing is, I am the breadwinner of my family since my dad got physically disabled a few years back. We weren’t financially stable so I had to get a job even though I was still studying. But thanks to Stand Up Chicago, I was able to find a job that I can manage while I am studying. This site and organization helped me out a lot and I’m glad that there are a lot of people like me that they were able to help.
Hello, Trisha and Kathleen. The people in the organization are happy to know that we were able to help you find a job. We appreciate your trust and support in this organization. Don’t worry, we will do our best to continue the things we do to help more people in Chicago.
