Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Stanislaus County Alliance Worknet

Meet Donna

Workforce Challenge

Donna was laid off from a healthcare billing services provider in February 2011 due to a company closure. Although she had worked as a medical biller for 4 years, she had no formal training and needed a skill upgrade to be marketable in today's economy.

Workforce Solution

Alliance Worknet provided Donna with Administrative/Accounting Training via Computer Tutor. After her successful completion there, Donna began to attend the biweekly Networking Sessions where she learned job search skills which included preparing her with a marketable resume and cover letter as well as discussing the importance of staying relevant and the possibilities of volunteering. Donna also took advantage of doing a mock interview with Alliance staff that gave her a constructive critique of her interviewing skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

With her new set of skills and confidence from the mock interview, Donna began to volunteer at Sutter Gould, one of the employers that spoke at the Networking Sessions. While volunteering, she learned about job openings at Sutter Gould and began applying. She was offered a position with them as an Ultrasound Tech. Donna continues to work at Sutter Gould now and is enjoying it very much.
