Meet John

Workforce Challenge

John had been unemployed for two years. Although he was computer savvy, no one would hire him because he did not have any computer or IT-related certifications. He became very frustrated with his job searches as he received one rejection after another.

Workforce Solution

John decided to become certified in order to help his employability. While searching for financial assistance for training programs, he discovered the Workforce Investment Board’s programs. The WIB helped John get the necessary funding so that he could get certified in Network Administration.

Outcomes & Benefits

With WIB funding, John obtained the needed certification for the job he wanted. Before even completing the final test, John had a job for Systematicx, earning $16/hour.

“This opportunity has really changed my life and given me a great career,” says John. “[The WIB] has helped me tremendously to achieve my goals. I could not have done it without them.”
