Ohio Valley Goodwill Congratulates Daneka Jett on Employment Success!

Daneka Jett, Successful Community Employee and Customer Service Ambassador

Once you meet Daneka Jett, you can immediately see why she would excel at any job that requires outstanding customer service skills. As an official greeter for Sears, Daneka’s brilliant smile and engaging personality, make her a highly valued team member for the company. Daneka’s career goals have always included working with people and in her present role, she has become an asset for her employer.

“I enjoy working with people. It’s a passion of mine. People make me smile and they seem to smile when I smile. I like that. I especially love watching families and kids. It’s nice to see them all having fun together in my store,” explains Daneka. As someone who had spent a long time seeking an employer who could provide the accommodations she needed, Daneka was pleased when her Goodwill Placement Advisor, Mark Leugers, informed her of the employment opportunity. Daneka’s positive personality and determination were all factors in helping her to obtain her current position. Daneka shares that if it were not for her own personal strength; faith in God; family supports; time and effort from her Goodwill Employment Specialist and lots of encouragement from her home staff; she would not be experiencing the success that she is today.

“At my job at Sears, I greet people, assist them with where to find things, keep other employees current on events, keep up with sales and more…but I like talking the best,” said Daneka. “It just feels good to talk with someone and see them enter or exit my store smiling.”
