BANGOR – Many of us struggle with writing a resume for a new job, but when you’re writing a resume without any guidance and also have a criminal record, roadblocks are sure to come your way.
Luckily, YPR, or Young People in Recovery has created a workshop to allow those looking for jobs to put their best foot forward, and leave the rest behind.
Were all entitled to our own story, but telling yours to an employer when it isn’t your best work can be intimidating.
“They are people with substance use disorders. if we call them anything else, that just strips them of their humanity” said Tina McLeod, a YPR Member.
The Bangor Recovery Network is making sure people are surviving the winter, whether its through handing out warm winter jackets, or getting their lives back on track through a new workshop,
Heath Myers, the Overdose Prevention Coordinator says they’ll help write resume’s and interviewing skills.
Mcleod says she’s stepping out to share her own personal story with parents, saying they can be anyone.
Proving that although your story may have a rocky start, you can still have a happy ending.
“Addiction has no boundaries” says McLeod.
