Meet Nicholas

Workforce Challenge

Nicholas was laid off from his job with a large grocery chain in June 2012. At the time he was about to get married and this put a damper on the festive day. He found a stop-gap job but he was laid off from that job too. He was really worried and beaten down as to how he would provide for his new wife.

Workforce Solution

Nicholas came to the Hollywood WorkSource and met with a case manager, Giovanna Garnett. She provided Nicholas with an overview of the Multi-Sector Workforce NEG program. Nicholas was only interested in job placement assistance and did not want to pursue training. Nicholas' career goal was to become a welder. He received job leads for positions in that field.

Outcomes & Benefits

In March 2014, Nicholas contacted his case manager to share that he had received a job offer from one of the leads she had given him when he first came to the center. Hollywood WorkSource assisted Nicholas by ordering him new tools to use in his new position. He is now working at JBT AeroTech earning $20.00+ per hour. He and his wife are doing well.
