Julio is a “graduate” of our WorkLink program and is one of our favorite success stories – as you can see from his huge smile, it was a delight working with Julio and helping him find a job that he loves.
Julio Dominguez joined WorkLink after completing a high school transition program. He knew he wanted to work, but didn’t know where or doing what. WorkLink gave him a chance to explore his interests, and with the help of an expert team, he obtained his first job at Starbucks, and later, a position at American Apparel. After four years there, Julio wanted something more challenging; a position that was more career-oriented. WorkLink enrolled Julio an internship program where Julio had the opportunity to try many positions, explore his skills and interests, and obtain glowing recommendation letters from his supervisors.
Today, Julio is a valued member of IDEO.org, the non-profit wing of the innovative design firm Ideo. As his supervisor attests, “Aside from the amazing efficiencies Julio has created for our office, his presence and attitude have improved our office culture dramatically. He is friendly, engaging, and unbelievably thoughtful to everyone he comes in contact with and we’re so grateful to have him on our team.”
