Workforce Challenge

Jerry Adams came to the Sutter County One Stop in October 2012. He had been searching for a new job for a while, and he was frustrated by the limited opportunities in the area. Although he'd been invited for interviews, he was never offered the positions. He was told he was over qualified, or that he needed a different type of experience or advanced education.

Workforce Solution

Together, Jerry and his case manager assessed his skills and experience. His resume was very good, and he had some strong qualifications, but he needed some additional vocational education/training to boost his chances of getting hired. At the same time this plan was being evaluated and negotiated, the One Stop forwarded Jerry's resume to a local business, Deluxe Packages. The company reviewed his application and resume, invited him in for an interview and subsequently offered him a position!

Outcomes & Benefits

Jerry was hired through an On-The-Job training contract. Upon completion, Deluxe Packages hired him on full time. Jerry absolutely enjoys his job, the role he plays, and the wage he is earning. He feels he has opportunity for advancement, as well. Jerry’s success is attributed to his professionalism, talent and perseverance, as well as his willingness to seek advice and learn new skills. Congratulations, Jerry!
