Workforce Challenge

Debra, a mature Veteran, was laid off in April and came into the WIA Program for intensive job search assistance. She had experience working in retail sales but wanted to transition into an administrative position.

Workforce Solution

Debra met with her Workforce Specialist and they refined her job search strategies, resume and interviewing skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within three months, Debra landed her self-proclaimed dream job in a full-time administrative/bookkeeping role. In her previous position, she made $10.00/hour and now she makes $16.25/hour - a 60% increase in her wages.
