Workforce Challenge

Carla was laid off from her administrative position at a trucking company after 15 years of employment. She came to the workforce office when her unemployment insurance benefits ended. She needed assistance searching for a new job.

Workforce Solution

Carla was enrolled in the WIA program as an eligible dislocated worker. With her employment specialist, she searched for opportunities for employment so she could get back to work as soon as possible. Carla received the opportunity to complete an on-the-job training contract with Maurice Ptacek at Farm Bureau Services to become an insurance agent.

Outcomes & Benefits

Carla obtained her insurance license through her employer and has been working as an office assistant/agent for the past year. She reports that she loves her job! Both the employer and the job seeker were extremely satisfied with the work the employment specialist did.
