Picture of Paula


After 19 years of working, my former company was sold and my position eliminated. For a few days, I was concerned about where life would lead me next. After connecting with the CareerForce, my concerns were soon eliminated.  Clare, my Career Counselor with the Northeast Minnesota Office of Job Training, sat with me and went over all my future options for schooling and work. She assisted me with an Interest Inventory which helped me find what field of work I may be good at and happy in.

Clare helped me get enrolled in classes at Lake Superior College where I graduated Student of the Year in the Legal Administrative Assistant course. Soon after, I was offered a position of employment with Carlton County Public Health and Human Services, which has allowed me a stable income, an employer close to home, an opportunity to meet new people and the chance to make a difference.

Thank you Clare and CareerForce!
