Clara Ends a Three Year Search

Clara
Clara

Clara has been searching for a position as a bookkeeper since she graduated from high school career training in 2017.  She is excited to finally be able to use the skills that she learned in school.  Her difficulty finding work is common in Guatemala.  Work is scarce and in order to get a position a young woman needs to already have work experience.  To get the work experience she needs to be hired.  It is a frustrating situation and leads to exploitation of young people who, if they can get a job, are  paid very low wages.  

Clara appreciates the opportunity that your donation is providing for her to get the experience that she needs.  She is interning in an accounting office in her hometown.  She is working with people who are teaching her what she needs to learn to be a  successful accounant. 

She says, "I am working in an office with an accountant and his secretary I am the general assitant.  I am thankful to you who support this program for giving me the opportunity to have new experiences.  Now I am workig with the profit and loss books, collect bills owed the office, and pay income taxes.  I am learning to do the work as the accountant wants it done and work in harmony with the secretary.  This experience will help me when I look for a job at the end of my year as an intern."

Clara is just starting her intern experience and already she is having success in a work environment.  For young women like Clara who do not have many role models in the workplace, she is learning that she fits in and can be a successful accountant.
