Workforce Challenge

Jesse became unemployed as the economy started to wind down. Since he was in the construction industry making garage doors, he found himself out of work. He came to the SELACO WIB Career Center and was interested in becoming an EMT. He had experience volunteering at a hospital and knew he would be comfortable in this type of environment. He also knew that he wanted to help people but in a different way than in his volunteer service.

Workforce Solution

Jesse was finally able to get training as an EMT through the SELACO WIB. He successfully completed his training in August 2012 and continued to study and prepare for the national certification.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jesse is now employed as an EMT working 3 days a week on 12 hour shifts. He is enjoying the challenge of his new career and also likes receiving a regular paycheck. He appreciates the help, assistance and guidance that he received from his case manager, training specialist and all the staff here at SELACO WIB.
