Workforce Challenge

Keila was working part time as a sales associate, but she wanted a more appropriate career path where she could do work she enjoyed and have opportunity for growth. She visited the workforce center for assistance.

Workforce Solution

Keila expressed an interest in being able to help others. With her counselor, she reviewed labor market projections for high demand occupations and received one-on-one career counseling. The counselor advised Keila to consider factors such as driving distance to work, time management, and the commitment required when starting a training program. WIA training funds helped Keila enroll in Greensboro Technical Community College's Surgical Technician program.

Outcomes & Benefits

Keila graduated from GTCC with an Associates Degree and as a Certified Surgical Technician. She is now employed full time at a medical center as a surgical tech, and has a bright future ahead of her.
