Retiree Now Able to Support Herself through Digital Works

Columbus, OH – Maureen Dunlevy is a recent retiree relying on limited income to support herself. Interested in customer service, Dunlevy found an ad in the newspaper for an online training program called Digital Works.

Digital Works is an innovative workforce-development program of Connected Nation. It focuses on the growing need for workers who are trained in digital job skills and customer service, and it provides job-placement assistance and career mentorship.

“The classes were so interesting and paced just right,” she said. “If you have any interest at all in customer service, take the class. It’s great.”

Upon graduation, Dunlevy achieved her objective of gaining better customer service skills and being able to provide for herself.

“My goal was to get a job that I can fit into my life and become a productive member of the community,” said Dunlevy. “It means a lot to me to be able to be on my own and not have to rely on social agencies or anybody else.”

Dunlevy graduated from the program on July 26 at the Reed Avenue Center in Columbus, Ohio.
