Meet Romanda

Workforce Challenge

Romanda was laid off in January 2013 and had been unable to find new employment. She had many years of human resources experience but lacked the certifications and educational credentials to obtain a new job in HR. She came to the WorkSource center to see whether they had resources to help her update her skills and become more marketable.

Workforce Solution

Romanda attended a WIA informational orientation. She received career guidance & counseling, case management and skills assessments. She participated and attended our workshops. Romanda was approved to attend a training course that would certify her as a Human Resource Administrative Worker. After completing the HR training course, Romanda received help with her job search, attending resume writing and mock interview workshops. This helped build her skills and become better prepared for job placement.

Outcomes & Benefits

Romanda was hired in mid-April 2014 in a new human resources position. She is earning $30 per hour with full benefits. Romanda is grateful for the assistance she received which enabled her to accomplish goals.
