Meet Nicolous

Workforce Challenge

Nicolous sold cars at a local dealership. When sales were slow because of the poor economy, he was laid off. He spent more than 12 months looking for another sales position before deciding to change careers. Nicolous wanted something new, something he really liked. He wanted to learn to drive a truck.

Workforce Solution

Nicolous knew he didn't have enough money for truck driving school, so he applied for a training scholarship. Golden Sierra helped Nicholas find the right school and paid for 100% of the tuition. After graduation, Nicolous received his Class A license and was hired by Werner Enterprises.

Outcomes & Benefits

Nicolous was happy and very relieved to be employed after such a long period without work. In fact, he was so eager to show off his new career he stopped by the career center with his truck and posed for a picture. Nicolous says the best part about his job is the local route which allows him to spend quality time with his family.
