Meet Alfredo

Workforce Challenge

Alfredo was laid off after 23 years of continuous employment. After the layoffs had been announced, he learned about the Workforce Investment Board's services through the Rapid Response Team. When a company announces a plant closure or a large layoff, a Rapid Response Team is sent out to assist employees with information about the transition.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Investment Board assisted Alfredo by providing a variety of programs and assistance to prepare him for his next career move, including orientation, career counseling, job referrals, networking, job club and countless workshops.

Outcomes & Benefits

Through these services, Alfredo was connected to local employers, and he was able to secure a temporary position until the company could offer a full-time position. Alfredo said, “The assistance provided impacted me and my future in a tremendous way. I needed to reconnect with the current job market. Without these services, it was going to be very difficult.”
