Meet Lauren

Workforce Challenge

After being unemployed for some time, Lauren was accepted as a student intern at the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) office. Lauren’s internship was short-term, but her advisor offered additional services to help secure a permanent position.

Workforce Solution

Lauren received mentoring, intensive job search assistance, workshop opportunities and individual counseling. She says that the resume and interview workshops were extremely helpful. Through the workshops, she was able to revise her resume and cover letters to look more professional, while showcasing her skills and qualifications. Lauren's advisor also wrote letters of recommendation for her.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lauren has since been hired by one of the WIB’s preferred employers, Security Defense. Her experience with the WIB is helping her perform current work duties. She is so appreciative of the assistance she received. She said, ”I gained the skills and experience to get my foot thorough the door in an administrative position, which, in time, will lead to a career in this field that I can apply my degree.”
