Maximino (Max) Villarreal – Work$Ready Graduate Success Story

Max came to Work$Ready with a goal to move into the banking industry.  His work history included supervisory and management work in the hotel and fast food industry.  He also worked briefly in service within the auto industry. Max was professional, showing up to class every day in a dress shirt and tie.  He was eager to succeed and recognized early on that the skills developed through Work$Ready were exactly what he needed to move toward his goal. Thanks to the program, Max created an impactful resume, a 30 Second Elevator Speech and learned to successfully respond to behavioral interview questions.

Post session, Work$Ready staff supported Max’s desire to launch a job search for an entry level banking position. He shares, “My greatest take away from the Work$Ready program was gaining tools, resources and the confidence to continue growing as a young professional!!” He received guidance to finding open positions, interview prep as well as an introduction to an alumni from BankWork$ as a mentor. They made an instant connection and the relationship assisted Max in building confidence to take this next step in his life and career.  We are excited to share that Max was offered a position with Canvas Credit Union as a Consultant and started his new career on June 15, 2020.
