Workforce Challenge

Syed was an experienced Telecommunications Project Manager with 18 years experience. Following his company's acquisition, merger and subsequent shutdown, he was laid off at the end of November 2013.

Workforce Solution

Syed received career counseling and completed an assessment interview with SELACO WIB. He attended the job search and Steps to Economic and Personal Success (STEPS) workshops, where he developed the skills to fine tune his job search. This helped Syed cultivate a number of interviews and potential job opportunities. SELACO WIB also provided support for Syed's education and helped him obtain his Project Management Professional (PMP) Certificate.

Outcomes & Benefits

"After demonstrating my skills, proving my abilities and having project management certification in 2014, I secured employment with Talent & Acquisition and their client DirecTV in August 2014. My thanks to those at SELACO WIB and the EDD, Norwalk team who helped me secure the next chapter in my career."
