Workforce Challenge

Jackie was 62 years old and working at the local office of a national brokerage firm when she was laid off after a little over 2 years of employment. Jackie wanted to continue working but was unsure of what would be available given her status as a senior worker.

Workforce Solution

After filing for benefits at her local Employment Security Commission office in Iredell County, Jackie heard about the WIA Program. Her son, who works at Bank of America, helped Jackie decide to consider returning to school. The Centralina WIB helped Jackie enroll in the Project Management & Business Analysis Certification Program at Central Piedmont Community College.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing her certificate program, Jackie found employment as a Business Analyst with Vision IT in Statesville, NC. She started work on July 11, 2011. She is thrilled with her new job.
