Workforce Challenge

Melissa had been unemployed for nearly two years with no success in finding a new job. As the end of her unemployment benefits drew near, she learned about a Digital Access program that WorkNet offered for free.

Workforce Solution

Melissa enrolled in the program and received free Microsoft® vouchers for an online training course in various software programs. The training focuses on increased productivity and improved skills to help develop career paths to participants.

The Microsoft® training helped Melissa to gain the knowledge and skills she was lacking which had prevented her from successfully obtaining gainful employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing the training, Melissa went on an interview and received a job offer on her very first meeting!

“Now, after two years I am finally employed and, better yet, I am finally employable! Thank you WorkNet!" wrote Melissa. "No one is an island. We all need a little help now and again. I am glad that our government has these much needed programs to help people get back on their feet.”
