Meet Amanda

Workforce Challenge

Amanda had worked at the same company for more than 4 years and was laid off when her company closed. She had good customer service experience, but no formal education after high school. She struggled to find employment where she made at least 80% of her previous salary.

Workforce Solution

Through the TAA program and with supportive assistance through the WIA program, Amanda was able to get her AAS degree in accounting.

Outcomes & Benefits

Amanda completed her AAS degree with honors and is now employed as an accountant, earning almost double what she made at her previous job.
