DPI Employment Connections
Change can be scary, but it can produce big rewards!
Anthony has been a part of DPI Employment Connections since 2012. For several years, he was employed by a local computer repair company and loved his job. Anthony has a great deal of knowledge of computers and this company was a great fit for him. He knew the owner well, they had a great rapport and Anthony was very happy. Then, the news came that the individual that owned the business would be retiring. Anthony was disappointed and apprehensive.
Change can be a very uncomfortable feeling for all of us. We want the comfort that routine has to offer, but there can be great gains to stepping out of your comfort zone, or at least looking at changes that are outside of your control as exciting opportunities for new experiences. That's exactly what Anthony did. With the support of his Community Employment Specialist, Angela Clark, Anthony began looking for new opportunities. What he found was amazing!
By exploring several computer repair businesses, Anthony and Angela had the opportunity to meet Matt, the owner of Velocity Computer Tech, LLC in North Kansas City. Matt was interested in learning more about DPI Employment Connections but he was really interested in learning more about Anthony, his skills and his experience. You see, Matt had greater ideas than Anthony even imagined.
Anthony went through the same hiring process all employees go through, he met a great group of guys that genuinely like working together and he was thrilled with the opportunity to be on such a great team and enjoy many opportunities to socialize with his co-workers outside of work, too.
Recently, Anthony began working on his Sophos certification so he can receive a pay raise that will further Anthony on his road to independence.
