Workforce Challenge

Rita was working part time and struggled with finding full time employment. She had recently separated from her husband and was raising their two small children on her own. She had family support in the area to help her care for her children while she was working.

Workforce Solution

Rita met with a WIA Employment Specialist at the Dodge City KansasWorks office and expressed her interest in becoming an office administrative assistant. Her resume indicated that she had several years experience working in an office setting but she needed to update her computer skills. Her case manager helped her enroll in a 6 week computer course through the local college and set up an OJT with a local business.

Outcomes & Benefits

Rita completed the Computer Applications Course and became employed as a full time billing clerk with benefits.
