Meet Bayar-Undral

Workforce Challenge

Bayar-Undral came to the U.S. from Mongolia. She had a degree in her country, but she was unable to find work here in the States.

Workforce Solution

Bayar-Undral completed a Quickbooks course through the WIB. Then, the WIB offered her a paid externship with a local business - where she could be paid through WIA yet work at a host site to get "real" work experience. Through this program, Bayar-Undral interviewed to work at local chamber of commerce for the summer and was accepted.

Outcomes & Benefits

Even though there is no agreement to hire the youth at the end of the summer externship, Bayar-Undral did very well, and was offered a job by the chamber of commerce at the end of her initial time period. Now, she continues to take English as a Second Language courses at the local community college and work toward her dream of becoming an accountant.
