Connie Lands Dream Job

Connie

“Everyone at DST is truly dedicated to doing what they do and it inspires me to do the same,” said Connie – one of our Team Members who has always wanted to work for the City of Palo Alto.

Michelle, one of our Employment Specialists, helped him kick off the job hunt.  “In November 2013 we applied to the Maintenance Assistant position that had just opened,” said Michelle.  “I knew this was the perfect position for him since it was removing graffiti and he was already calling in all the graffiti into the city and assisting in getting it removed [as part of his shift with Downtown Streets Team].”

Sure enough, come January he had an interview and was hired a short time later.  One of our staff saw him driving the city truck and he was grinning from ear to ear.

“When people tried but failed at life, DST is where they can put their life back together,” said a beaming Connie. “The door is always open for opportunity.”
