Workforce Challenge

Dell lost his job of 13+ years in the health care benefits field due to downsizing. The decline in the economy was the reason for his job loss and became his very challenge to find employment. He was diligent in his efforts to seek employment but without a degree he was not eligible for many positions.

Workforce Solution

Dell came to WIA where he participated in various workshops, PET (Preferred Employer Training Program) and On the Job Training Program. Dell knew he had the skills and abilities but valued the support of the WIA staff for their constant support and encouragement. He attended recruitment events, and had multiple interviews. Through WIA and Employer partnership Dell participated in NEG/OJT at Metalskills in Greenville.

Outcomes & Benefits

Dell turned his OJT experience into a full time position and received a salary increase. His new employer felt that he has progressed well during his OJT and we pleased with his performance. He recently received a salary increase of $2,000 annually.
