Meet Heather

Workforce Challenge

Heather came into the Workforce Center for assistance with her job search as well as the opportunity for training. Since she was underemployed in low paying, dead end jobs with no chance for advancement, she was very discouraged, but determined to learn valuable skills that would help her become a desirable candidate and build a better future.

Workforce Solution

Heather had interviewed for an electrical parts sales position. The electrical company offered her the position, but she did not have all the skills needed. Workforce staff were able to partner with the company to develop on-the-job training for Heather. She was enrolled in the Workforce Investment Act program. In preparation for starting her job, she earned a Colorado Ready Certificate, which demonstrated her positive workplace skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

Heather has completed training and is now employed, earning a substantial wage. She is proud of her new electrical knowledge and forklift operating skills. This is a positive example of a collaborative public-private partnership that greatly benefited a determined and hard working job seeker.
