My name is Gervelyne George however, I prefer “Lynn.” I am the Jobs Developer with Star of Hope Mission and my primary duty is to help our residents secure employment by establishing relationships with companies who commit to giving our residents a second chance and build partnerships with community organizations that mutually benefit Star of Hope and the community at large.
For almost ten years, I have worked in the field of Workforce Development facilitating the match between prospective employees and employers' business employment needs. As a result, I have assisted in the development of various work groups and conducted many workshops on employability skills for those unemployed, underemployed and/or in career transition.
Working in this part of Human Resources has landed me much success in helping individuals overcome barriers to employment and assist employers find loyal employees who would not otherwise apply to their job postings for various reasons.
