Workforce Internship Leads to Full-Time Job
First Workings is partnered up with AMS Il, and Sabasthian Vargas was recommended for the program, resulting in this amazing opportunity of employment. His training and 2 week internship has enabled Sebasthian, who lives with his mom in Mott Haven, to land a job with a construction company.
“Some of the staff knew I was having trouble finding a job and getting work experience,” said Vargas. “First Workings basically was interested in getting to know who I was and what I was interested in. First Workings trained me and helped me get to where I want to be in life,” said Vargas. “They did not shut me down because I lacked experience.”
Chloe Mullarkey, First Workings executive director, said that Vargas was an “amazing ambassador” for the internship program.
“Sebasthian is an incredible young man with enormous personality. He’s the type of student who will take initiative and really put himself out there to make things happen,” said Mullarkey.
