Workforce Success Story Submitted By:

Meet Wendy

Workforce Challenge

Wendy, a recently laid-off veteran, enrolled in the WIA Dislocated Worker Program. She had worked in I.T. and on communications systems in her previous position. She had not earned a degree, so she was counting on her military and professional experience and certifications to improve her employment outlook.

Workforce Solution

Wendy’s workforce specialist provided her with intensive case management services, including resume coaching, interview skills coaching, assessments and motivational counseling. It was determined that she would benefit from training and was approved to attend CAPM/PMP/Microsoft Project certification training to become more marketable.

Outcomes & Benefits

Wendy's previous employer offered her a new position contingent on the completion of her CAPM/PMP/Microsoft Project certification programs and so she was re-hired as a Technical Project Manager III with a starting wage of $90,000 per year. She has since obtained her ITIL certification and continues to work on her PMP certification.
