Goodwill Success Story: Meet Rachel



Rachel remembers feeling nervous when she decided to attend Goodwill TulsaWORKS class earlier this year because she’s always had a hard time believing in herself.

But that pitfall did not last long after earning her CLEET certification following the completion of Goodwill’s Unarmed Private Security course. When Rachel walked through our doors again this month, our staff had to do a double-take. The Rachel they once knew is now radiating confidence! Rachel is happily employed as a security supervisor where she oversees four sites, handles staff scheduling, and serves as the main point of contact with the building owners to ensure their security needs are met by her team.

“I enjoy meeting new people,” Rachel said. “I am so grateful I not only completed the course at TulsaWORKS Career Academy, but also landed a job I love through Goodwill’s community relationships.”

Each TulsaWORKS student meets with a Goodwill Career Navigator who offers support and resources. “My Career Navigator, Angela, was welcoming, she answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable,” Rachel said. “Angela believed in me. And that helped me believe in myself.”

Goodwill exists to see lives improved through the power of work. It is always an encouraging day for our staff when they see former students, like Rachel, come by to share their career success!
