Making a Difference in Our Community: Abby Nobili Helps Discover a Path to a Better Job

Abby Nobili, assistant director, transitions planning, inspires our community’s residents to achieve their goals in her role at Valencia and on her own time as a volunteer with The Jobs Partnership of Florida, an organization dedicated to transforming lives of the working poor and underemployed by helping them discover a path to a better job.

Since August 2014, Abby has been a Jobs Partnership coach, assistant team lead, interviewer and instructor.

“I have a background in career counseling and love helping others as they work to better their lives in the workplace,” Abby explained. “It’s a great way for me to give back in one of my passion areas, and the organization provides so many skills and resources to help students succeed.”

Seeing the positive changes in her Jobs Partnership students from the beginning of class until the end inspires Abby to continue volunteering. “They usually begin unsure of themselves and lacking proper development in career preparation,” she shared. “Seeing the transformation during the class where students gain more confidence and are ready to search for that next step, or a better next step, is so rewarding. Being able to celebrate their wins and teaching practical skills such as resume writing, interviewing techniques and how to conduct yourself in the workplace are a few other things I love.”
