Meet Anthony

Workforce Challenge

Anthony had been laid off from his job in the aircraft manufacturing industry, and had been unemployed for over 18 months. Anthony feared that his age and his lack of English language skills were contributing to his difficulty obtaining employment. As the only financial support for his family, Anthony came to KansasWorks for assistance in finding new employment.

Workforce Solution

Anthony qualified to be in the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program due to his job being affected by an industry downturn. At the Workforce Center, a TAA Case Manager assisted Anthony with updating his resume, uploading it, and using to search for jobs.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within a month of receiving help from his case manager, Anthony obtained employment. He started working with a small aircraft employer, a job he was qualified for based on his experience and knowledge. Anthony is now back to work and is able to support his family.
