Workforce Challenge

Mark was considered long term unemployed. He was very desperate to find not just a job but a lifelong career for himself.

Workforce Solution

Working with representatives from Kansas WorkforceONE, Mark identified an open position working on a CNC machine. He had some of the skills but not enough to completely qualify for the job. Kansas WorkforceONE talked with the employer and was convinced to access On the Job Training funds for six months, giving Mark an opportunity to completely learn all the skills. WorkforceONE monitored Mark's progress with the employer, who said he was making good progress. When the OJT term was complete, the employer offered Mark the job and brought him on full time.

Outcomes & Benefits

After Mark started as a full time employee, within a few months he was given a raise. Six months later he was promoted to night foreman and was given another $3.50 raise. The employer said, "This is one great success story as to how Kansas WorkforcONE has changed Mark's life!"
