Meet Roy

Workforce Challenge

Roy came into the WIA Adult program as a long-term unemployed, SNAP recipient in the Employment First Program. He had over 15 years of experience as a software engineer, but needed to upgrade his skills and address the 6-year gap in his work history. Roy also had a disability.

Workforce Solution

Roy attended various workshops provided at the workforce center, revised his resume and brushed up on his interviewing skills. It was decided that an on-the-job training would benefit Roy to offset the large gap on his resume. Through that program, he learned to be a Technical Account Executive in the IT Industry.

Outcomes & Benefits

Thanks to his on-the-job training, Roy secured new employment. Roy is no longer receiving food stamps and has raised his wage by almost 50%.
