Workforce Challenge

Mitch was having a difficult time finding employment with his current skill set. He occasionally found odd jobs, yet was getting discouraged not having full-time employment to meet his financial needs. He started evaluating the option of doing a career change. However, he could not afford the cost of vocational training.

Workforce Solution

After careful self-evaluation and considering different career options, Mitch applied for a training scholarship through the Workforce Investment Act for a truck driver training course to obtain his Class A license.

Outcomes & Benefits

“I never pictured myself with a Class A license and endorsements. It’s pretty exciting!" said Mitch. Immediately after graduation Mitch had multiple offers for full-time employment. “So many companies want me to be a truck driver for them. I’ve never had so many options before.” Mitch is now employed full-time for a well known trucking company.
