Meet Andy

Workforce Challenge

Andy was a former Census worker and was unemployed. He had had difficulty finding permanent full time employment since being laid off. He came to the WorkSource Center for assistance.

Workforce Solution

At the Center, Andy attended job seeker and resume writing workshops. He was assisted with creating a cover letter, an updated resume & a reference package. Andy talked with a career specialist about career options and received case management and guidance in his job search. He participated in mock interviews and was referred to a staffing agency partner, who had been contracted to fill an opening for a district management position with a grocery chain. The agency interviewed Andy three times, and each time the WorkSource Center helped him prepare for the interview.

Outcomes & Benefits

After an intense interviewing process, Andy was offered the position of District Manager with ALDI Corporation, and negotiated an annual salary of $85,000. He recently traveled to Arkansas to meet his supervisor, and he will train for a year there while the company pays his living expenses. He is excited to have a stable job with a retirement plan and benefits. Congratulations, Andy!
