"I'm actually looking to retool my skill set, which is a metaphor I learned today that is seeking a different skill set, which will provide me the ability and the means to work later into my life. I've always worked with my back to make my income. Being here is going to provide me with an opportunity to work later in my years because I will be able to physically do it."

My name is Deb Holleman. I've been helping people find work for the past 18 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology from the University of MN-Duluth. After graduation, I was employed as a career specialist with SOAR Career Solutions for almost 11 years, where I worked with ex-offenders and individuals with multiple barriers to employment. I was hired by the City of Duluth Workforce Development in July of 2009 and have been working with Dislocated Workers ever since.
