Workforce Challenge

Alejandro visited the Kansas Workforce Center to learn about unemployment benefits. After being laid off from a local food manufacturer, he was very concerned, as he was the only source of income for his household.

Workforce Solution

Alejandro met with a case manager regarding his options, which helped Alejandro formulate a plan and feel more hopeful about the future. He attended job search workshops and completed an interest profile to assist with selection of a career. "We wanted to make sure that Alejandro found a career, not just a job," shared his case manager. Alejandro explored in-demand careers in his area, with an eye towards jobs that would allow for growth in the future.

Outcomes & Benefits

Alejandro enrolled into the criminal justice program at the local community college, and completed an internship with police department during his training, allowing him to experience the field of law enforcement first hand. After his internship with the police department, he knew that he had made the right choice in careers. He will obtain his degree in May of 2014 and is ready and excited to start a new chapter in his life.
