Meet Valerie

Workforce Challenge

Valerie had been laid off from work and had been unemployed for a few months. She did not have transportation, so getting to the Jefferson County American Job Center (AJC) was difficult. After months of having no luck finding a job on her own, Valerie decided to make the trip to Golden. After meeting with AJC staff in the Career Center, Valerie took a few assessments to determine her skill level. The assessments showed that she needed assistance in some areas.

Workforce Solution

To help Valerie update her skill set, AJC staff enrolled her in several of the AJC workshops, including: Excel I & II; Advanced Resume; and Interviewing. The AJC staff also helped Valerie search for jobs while in the Career Center. They gave her encouragement that she could find a new job and get her life straight again.

Outcomes & Benefits

After only one month of workshops, job referrals and general coaching, Valerie found a "wonderful new job". She stated that the hardest part was coming into the AJC, but she would have never found her current position if she had not come in.
