Samuel enrolled in Mi Casa’s career training programs with the desire to launch a career – not just get a job.
Samuel was born in Miami to a Spanish-speaking family but moved to Denver at a young age. Not interested in school, Samuel says he barely graduated high school, and the jobs he held after high school were dead end and insufficient to make ends meet.
“Through Mi Casa’s career programs, I not only learned about the banking industry, but also how to behave in a work environment, how to sell myself as the best candidate for the job, and how to present myself in a professional way – Mi Casa gave me the confidence I needed,” said Samuel.
Thanks to Mi Casa’s Bilingual Bank Teller program, Samuel was able to land a full-time job at Chase Bank as a teller, which he greatly enjoys. He is learning more every day and enjoys working with his coworkers, managers and customers. In the future, Samuel hopes to become a banker, with the goal of eventually moving up to a manager position.
