Love Your Job! 3 Reasons I Love Working at The Arc of Monroe

Do you love what you are doing? Work is work, after all. Do you really need to love what you do?

Yes. You do.

Perhaps a career at The Arc of Monroe is for you. Here are 3 of the reasons Employment Specialist Katie Wooton says working at The Arc of Monroe is so rewarding.

Getting to Help People
I love working for the Arc because I get to help people become more independent. In many cases, I support people in finding their very first jobs and it is so rewarding to see what a big impact that can have on their lives.

Building My Skills
I started working for the Arc right after I graduated from college, so it was my first full-time job. Working here has helped me build confidence in myself and realize what I am capable of.

Seeing My Hard Work Pay Off
My favorite part about my job is getting to see the results of my hard work. When I first meet people, I start by teaching them resume and interview skills. Eventually, I get to see them master their jobs and become comfortable in their workplaces. It all really does pay off and it is such a pleasure to see the people I support gain so many valuable new skills.
