Mohammed Dawood

Mohammed is an immigrant from Iraq who came to the United States with a simple goal: finding a job in the financial industry. 
 
“I have met very few people that showed the determination that Mohammed has. He proved over and over how passionate he was about the financial industry by not only coming to this country as an immigrant in pursuit of a job in the finance field, but also getting his master’s degree in economics from Eastern Illinois University,” says Jose Velez, SER BankWork$ Instructor and Coordinator. 
 
Over and over again Mohammed tried to find a job at a financial institution, but every time he came up empty-handed. He would even reach the job interview stage with banks like Wells Fargo, but he just couldn’t catch the break he was looking for. 
 
“He had tried before to get into a bank but didn’t have much success,” says Jose Velez. “Which is why he joined BankWork$.”
 
Mohammed then learned about the BankWork$ program, and signed himself up hoping that this experience would help him get the breakthrough he was after. At the conclusion of the 8 week BankWork$ program, Mohammed had the opportunity to once again interview with Wells Fargo, and this time there would be a happy ending.
 
“We worked on a few things to make sure that he was successful,” says Jose Velez. “And it has really worked out for him, as he is now a proud Wells Fargo employee.”
 
Wells Fargo hired Mohammed for a teller position, which fulfills his goal when he came to this country. He is now set for the career in the financial industry he has long dreamed of.
