Kansas Department of Commerce-Veteran Service Team

Meet Scott

Workforce Challenge

Scott came to the KS Department of Commerce Veteran Services Team in April 2013 as an unemployed veteran. He requested assistance with his resume, on-line job searching and interview techniques.

Scott is an IT professional with significant experience in both military and civilian employment, but he had no Bachelors degree or recent certifications.

Workforce Solution

After conducting a comprehensive assessment with Scott, his case manager met with him several times, showing him how to customize his resume to job descriptions until Scott became comfortable with the process. With assistance, Scott also registered for online email job search updates with web-based job search sites to provide alerts to his email when new IT positions opened in Wichita. Finally, Scott learned interviewing techniques and how to best prepare for interviews. His case manager sent Scott emails with tips on things to do before during and after your interview including his cover and thank you letters.

Outcomes & Benefits

Scott recently accepted an IT Management position with Saint Francis Community Services in Wichita, Kansas at a strong starting salary. He is happy to be working again and grateful for the assistance he received.
