Stamford CTWorks: Melissa Berar

Melissa had been working at Wachovia Bank as a financial specialist before she became unemployed. After six months, she visited our CTWorks office looking for job search assistance. She was introduced to the Workforce Investment Training Program, enrolled in the portfolio workshop, completed the WIA process and was approved funding to attend Naugatuck Valley Community College for training in Real Estate Principles and Practices.

Melissa completed training and earned a Realtor license in June 2011. She is currently employed at William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty earning a salary and commission.

Melissa was very proud in bringing a copy of her Business Card with her own personal picture and Realtor title to her WIA case manager to file.
