Meet Linda

Workforce Challenge

Linda was laid off from a large aviation company after working for that employer for 15 years. As an older worker, Linda was experiencing a real challenge in even getting a job interview. Linda felt she needed to upgrade her skills in order to obtain suitable employment.

Workforce Solution

Linda came to the Workforce Center for assistance, and was qualified for the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program. Through TAA, Linda attended training to earn her Certificate of Completion in Advanced Aerostructures.

Outcomes & Benefits

Less than a month after completing her training and earning her Certificate, Linda found employment as a Sheet Metal Assembler for another large aviation company. She is now earning a self sufficient wage.
