Kerstin Cybak is Loving Her New-Found Career

by Christine Rinaldi

Kerstin Cybak visited the Roseville Michigan Works! Career Center in April 2017. She had been out of work for the past few years, but a drastic change in her financial situation suddenly made finding employment a priority. She quickly discovered that her lack of recent work experience and marketable skills were barriers to landing a job. Kerstin knew she needed training to make herself more marketable.

She met with Career Planner, Christine Rinaldi, to determine the best course of action. After some exploration, Kerstin’s interest in health care led her to the pharmacy technician program at Ma-comb Community College. She was able to enroll in the program with Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) tuition assistance.

Kerstin excelled in her classes and completed the certification program in December 2017. It didn’t take long for her to gain a full-time position at a compounding pharmacy at Karmanos Cancer Center. Kerstin expressed her gratitude for the opportunity, “This is the experience of a lifetime. I am extremely grateful for the aid of the Roseville and Warren Michigan Works offices, especially Christine Rinaldi. I am loving my “New Found Career.” I am looking ahead, and my future is looking bright!”
