Meet Janice

Workforce Challenge

Janice was laid off from her position in the aircraft industry. She had over 43 years’ experience and was having a hard time finding new employment. Janice's age also worried her as she was about to turn 60 years old. She believed her age was a big factor in her not being able to find employment.

Workforce Solution

Janice came into the Workforce center and was found to be eligible for the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program. Through the TAA program, Janice was able to obtain training that would help her gain new career skills. She decided she wanted to work in the medical field and chose the Registered Medical Assistant program, an in-demand field where she would have a good chance at finding employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Janice completed the Registered Medical Assistant program in one year, graduating with honors. Within a month of completing the program, Janice found a new job and is now back to work.
