Jasmine Rosa

Hard work is obviously no deterrent for single mom, Jasmine Rosa. Despite unemployment and raising her 6 month old son, Rosa has not let circumstances stop her from pursuing her dream of becoming an attorney and joining most of her family members in the legal field. Rosa currently holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master’s degree in criminal justice, however, with little experience in the legal field, her dreams of becoming an attorney seemed to come to a halt. In her previous employment with the Department of Children and Families, Rosa had discovered some of the programs available through CareerSource Tampa Bay. Unsure of where to go next, Jasmine turned to CareerSource for help!

Rosa underwent an initial assessment with her CareerSource Counselor to determine what kind of services would suit her best. After receiving several childcare referrals, Rosa found the trusted care she so desperately needed. With her employment once again secured with the Department of Children and Families, and her baby safe during her work hours, Rosa was ready to get back on track!

Rosa’s Career Counselor now focused in on Rosa’s law career. She had no work experience in the field, which greatly hindered her ability to find the kind of employment she truly wanted. Her counselor suggested she apply for the Paralegal Certificate Program at the University of Florida with the possibility of a tuition voucher that would aid in her program costs. Enrolled in her classes, Rosa stated that she truly believes this is the right direction for her legal career! With CareerSource support, Rosa continues to work to secure a future position at the Public Defender’s Office to work in non-profit legal service helping those who are less fortunate.
