Chris Tonkovic – Virginia
Chris worked a number of years in database management and business intelligence for Fortune 500 companies. He didn’t let a new illness define him. He entered the Ticket to Work program determined and eager to contribute his skills again. Chris worked diligently with his job counselor at Employment Options and made the most of his experience.
Chris is now working for the U.S. Government’s General Services Administration as a Transportation Operations Specialist (Data Analytics). He was hired for this position through the government’s Schedule A hiring program for individuals with disabilities. Chris enjoys doing performance tracking and database management. What a great example of transferable skills and complete determination. Way to go Chris!
Below you will find Edna’s personally written story.
“The entire staff at Employment Options treated my case with diligence and respect. My counselor – Sarah Lind – fed me job opportunities from quality sources and made sure that I had a follow up plan. Working with Paula, the two crafted a resume for me that garnered attention and got interviews. Now gainfully employed, Sarah continues to touch base from time to time as my Trial Work Period draws to a close” (Chris)
