Worker Ends Long Job Search

DragooMs. Amy Dragoo had been out of work for a year when she contacted Resource Specialist Libby Geddes at the Bennettsville SC Works. Amy was a CNA with several years of experience who expressed interest in local healthcare jobs. Geddes informed Dragoo of the newly-opened McLeod Hospital in Cheraw and showed Dragoo how to apply online for her desired position.

Within days, Dragoo contacted Geddes to let her know that she had received a call to come for an interview at McLeod, but was concerned becauseshe didn’t have professional attire to wear to her interview. Geddes referred Dragoo to the local Goodwill where she obtained a professional-looking outfit for her interview.

Dragoo has since informed DEW that she is gainfully employed as a CNA at McLeod in Cheraw. She continued to say that Geddes gave her the motivation needed to follow her dreams of continuing to work in a hospital setting
