Meet Terry

Workforce Challenge

Terry visited the Larimer County Workforce Center as an Employment First (EF) referral. She had data entry experience and had been able to get employment through a temp agency. However, she wanted a permanent position. Terry felt that she was having challenges finding employment because of her age (55+). She also had large employment gaps.

Workforce Solution

After updating Terry's resume, staff referred her to a non-profit agency to interview for a workforce center subsidized internship. The non-profit agency said they that would not be able to hire Terry after the internship. In the meantime, she would learn valuable office skills. Monthly evaluations were received with high scores, indicating that Terry was doing very well.

Outcomes & Benefits

Three days before the internship ended, the non-profit agency said that they wanted to hire Terry part-time! The non-profit agency also said that they hoped to hire Terry full-time next year.
