Meet Patricia

Workforce Challenge

Patricia was laid off from her job very abruptly. She had been unemployed for two months and was beginning to feel anxious that she might not find employment in the future. Patricia met with a case manager and job developer at the Build OneStop several times over a three month period to discuss job search strategies and techniques.

Workforce Solution

Because Patricia's former employer was named under the Multi-Sector Workforce Partnership NEG grant, Patricia qualified to receive assistance from the Center. Although she was not interested in training, she needed to learn how to find the right job for her. The case manager and job developer kept Patricia occupied by giving her job search "homework". They had her practice job search skills and interviewing skills. Patricia also received assistance with creating a better resume.

Outcomes & Benefits

At last, Patricia's new resume and interviewing skills paid off, and she was hired full time in a new job. She is now back on her feet.
