Meet Orlando

Workforce Challenge

Orlando was a dislocated worker who had been laid off from his previous position. He was looking for a new career in a different field that would be both challenging and rewarding.

Workforce Solution

Orlando was referred by the Employment Development Department to the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) for re-training. The WIB provided Orlando with career counseling, vocational training for IT and business management certifications, job referrals, case management and supportive services.

Outcomes & Benefits

Orlando is now employed full-time as a Systems Administrator for Capriccio Software, a company that works to provide IT Systems support and administration for the government. He says that his WIB advisor really helped him put everything in perspective. Orlando also says that the WIB services had a “big impact” on him and encouraged him to go back to school.
