Meet James

Workforce Challenge

James was a burned out mental health counselor and social worker seeking a change of career. He began attending Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) meetings and completed assessments that helped him reorient his current skills and interests toward another career path.

Workforce Solution

James discovered that technical writing would be a match and with financial assistance from JTPA, completed his Certificate in Technical Communication at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL. As a result, James secured employment where he worked for 11 until unfortunately, he was laid off. Once again, James turned to McHenry County Workforce Network (MCWN)for career support.

Outcomes & Benefits

James says of his experience with the workforce network , "Each time I need them, the MCWN staff helped me successfully re-enter the job force. The staff and the resources are superb. I am very grateful for the crucial assistance I’ve received over the years and for the help yet to come.
