Meet Carolyn

Workforce Challenge

Carolyn came to the Workforce Center after previously working as a Clinical coordinator earning $21,000.00 per year. She recognized that her current education would not provide opportunity for her desired upward mobility in her current field and so she wanted to pursue training to become a Physician Assistant.

Workforce Solution

With WIA tuition assistance, Carolyn attended PA school.
She earned high marks while honing her medical skills and refining her professional presentation skills. After graduation, Carolyn worked with center staff to create an updated resume and cover letter and to apply for multiple positions.

Outcomes & Benefits

Carolyn accepted a well-paying position as a Physician Assistant, making house calls in California, and earning a reported annual salary of $139,000 per year. She achieved greater financial stability with WIA assistance toward her training/tuition, and job-readiness coaching.
