Virginia GED ® Success Stories: December 2012

Elena Torres Cintron Elena Torres Cintron Checklist Elena Torres Cintron Map

When Elena Torres Cintron realized that laboring outdoors at a gardening center was no longer the kind of work she wanted to do, she decided to pursue her GED® test credential and improve her employment options. Telamon Corporation helped her gain direction by providing assistance with her resumé and her job interviewing skills. Elena’s bilingual skills helped her considerably in the job market. In just a few months, she found a full-time office job as a medical business assistant. It took a long time for Elena to get to where she is today, but, she says, "I loved every minute of it." A positive attitude and a supportive community network have helped Elena change her career course, and she’s not looking back.
