Meet Roger

Workforce Challenge

Roger came into the Jeffco American Job Center as a 70-year-old veteran who was just laid off due to downsizing at his company. As he had not looked for employment in decades, Roger was having trouble finding a job on his own.

Workforce Solution

American Job Center staff invited Roger to a veterans' hiring event. Roger immediately felt reassured the American Job Center could help him find a new job based on the participating companies and how the staff was managing the event. After the event, Roger worked with staff from the AddME Talent Pool to bring his resume up to date and practice interviewing. The staff helped him stay motivated and reassured him that he could find new employment. Staff also showed Roger how his resume could be posted online and other technology tips.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within four months of being laid off Roger found new employment. He was much more confident in finding a position with the help provided by American Job Center staff. Congratulations, Roger!
