Meet Richard

Workforce Challenge

Richard was laid off from his job and was receiving unemployment. He was interested in retraining to enter the medical field as a Phlebotomist, but was also looking for any available work. He came to the Northwest Piedmont Council of Governments (NWPCOG) for assistance.

Workforce Solution

At the NWPCOG center, Richard qualified for financial assistance to return to school and obtain a certificate in Phlebotomy. At the same time, he worked diligently in the Career Readiness Computer Center to boost his employability. Additionally, he attended various employment fairs and networking groups such as JOBCLUB.

Outcomes & Benefits

Richard's determination paid off when he was hired by Hanesbrand in Kernersville. The services he received through WIA and the job center helped get him back on the path to employment. Congratulations, Richard!
