The Kentucky Works Program (KWP) was approached by a local school and asked to participate in their Job Shadowing Program. Our Hardin County worker hosted Paige Mullins, who is a senior at Thomas Nelson High School.

During Paige’s day of job shadowing, she learned just how busy working in an office environment can be. She learned that multi-tasking is a necessity and that you must learn how to prioritize different situations. When asked about the experience, KWP worker, Gayan Hutchinson, said that she enjoyed working with Paige and helping her see what the workplace is all about.

The KWP Staff has also been very busy learning about the new SNAP Employment and Training Program. Since completing the computer training, each Employment Specialist has been busy working with participants to help them set goals for their employment future. Some staff members have had additional training, where others have simply been introduced to an employer to help them get started with steady employment.
