Workforce Challenge

Gregg’s background is in construction and as the economy slowed there were less and less jobs available in the construction industry. Having no computer, internet, email or job search skills and being new to the area, Gregg knew he needed to find resources to assist him with his job search.

Workforce Solution

A friend referred Gregg to the Auburn Connections Center. Since he arrived most days when the Center opened by 830 AM, we joked that “a day without Gregg was a day without sunshine.” With the staff’s guidance, Gregg learned how to use the computer, create and use an email account, search the internet to apply for jobs, and create resumes using Microsoft Word.

Outcomes & Benefits

Gregg’s daily persistence paid off, and he was hired part time by a leader in the food service industry. He says his success in reaching his first goal of employment was due to, “the knowledgable staff, the outstanding professional atmosphere of the Auburn Connection Center, and applying the information I learned in the workshops.” Gregg is enrolled in college to further his education and plans to use the Center’s services as he continues his career quest.
