Workforce Challenge

Prior to being laid off, Ray had worked in the telecommunications industry. Despite a long job search, he had been unable to find a new job. “No company was hiring with my specific skill set,” he said.

Workforce Solution

Ray came to the Pikes Peak Workforce Center for assistance. There, he considered other career options and reviewed the in-demand occupations in the state of Colorado. He decided to pursue a Bachelors degree in Nursing, a field with projected demand throughout the state. The Pikes Peak Workforce Center, through the Workforce Investment Act, helped defray Ray’s school expenses by paying tuition assistance.

Outcomes & Benefits

Ray returned to school, earned his Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing and his RN License. He is now employed as an RN at Evans Army Hospital at Fort Carson, Colorado. Congratulations, Ray!
