Meet Elainne

Workforce Challenge

Elainne had retired after working for the same company for 26 years. She wanted to get back into the workforce, but she found that her age, lack of resume, and weak interview skills were a major barrier for her to gain employment.

Workforce Solution

Elainne came in to the workforce center and completed WIA eligibility so that she could receive intensive job search, resume and internet navigation assistance to do job search. She came almost every day and worked to find new employment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Elainne created a good resume that communicated her skills and qualifications, and she became more comfortable with online job searching and applying for jobs online. Her efforts led to employment as a Cleaning Tech for Westar.
