Employing People, Improving Lives

Success Story: Veronica Lightburn

Veronica dreamed of branching out into a new career but she didn’t know to make her dream a reality. Fortunately, her partner told her about Goodwill’s Technology Career Program (TCP) and encouraged her to apply. With very little tech experience, she thought there was no way she would be accepted into the program. Unbeknowst to her, the purpose of Goodwill’s program is to work with individuals at all levels, from those with limited and basic skills to those with advanced skills and experience.

Veronica was accepted into the program! Through her classes, Veronica learned SCRUM, how to code and ServiceNow. She even placed third place in her class’s coding competition! Best of all, after completing the program, Veronica was offered a full-time job at Accenture.
