Ohio County, Ky (August 26, 2020) – Just a few months ago, Sarah Chinn found herself unemployed and looking for a new remote work opportunity. But finding jobs during COVID-19 can be challenging. After about five months of unemployment, Chinn stumbled upon the Digital Works Facebook page — and the rest is history.
Chinn is from Beaver Dam, Kentucky, and was among the first of many to participate in the new virtual Digital Works class in Ohio County. The Ohio County Economic Development Alliance(OCEDA) has partnered with Digital Works to present the people of Ohio County with technology training for online telework jobs.
Chinn was drawn to Digital Works because she was interested in trying a work-from-home job. The class included communication skills instruction, customer-centered training, typing and transcription practice, mock sales sessions, and résumé and interview assistance.
“I am grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to be enrolled in and have graduated from the Digital Works program to qualify for a work-from-home position,” said Chinn. “The class was very insightful, fun, relaxed and definitely informative.”
After graduation, Chinn set up her home office and secured a new job at Teletech. She is excited to be working again and in the comfort of her own home. Congratulations! Best wishes from everyone at Digital Works on your future success.
