Meet David

Workforce Challenge

David had become very discouraged after years of job searching. He was not getting callbacks or interviews. When he did, the response would be "you're overqualified." David came to Lane Workforce Partnership for assistance with his job search.

Workforce Solution

At the workforce center, David received job search and resume writing assistance. He attended workshops on the best ways to conduct his job search, ways to improve interviewing skills and how to budget during his period of unemployment.

Outcomes & Benefits

David's perseverance paid off as he identified positions of interest and started interviewing. He accepted a job offer as a Purchasing Coordinator at an annual salary of $67,000 with full benefits and a 401K to help him save for retirement.

"Thank you for all your help with my resume and cover letter, it's what got me the job," wrote David. "That, and three interviews and a two-day trip to Klamath Falls. You were instrumental in keeping me focused and gave me some needed confidence. I can't thank you enough for the time you gave me. I am very grateful that I found the services I needed to get a good job." Congratulations, David!
