Meet Shelly

Workforce Challenge

Shelly worked as an Administrative Director at a local YMCA prior to being laid off. She survived a 22 month layoff by working part-time at Weingart-Lakewood Family YMCA. In April 2015, Shelly was referred to SELACO-WIB from a YMCA member. The biggest challenge for Shelly was that temp agencies were not very helpful to her in her job search.

Workforce Solution

At SELACO-WIB, Shelly received assistance with updating her resume to highlight her skills. Using the new resume, in May 2015, Shelly answered an ad for an Office Manager at Industrial High Voltage on Monster.com. Days later, she received a call that she had been offered the job.

Outcomes & Benefits

When asked if she would recommend SELACO-WIB to others, Shelly said, “Of course!” Shelly would advise others to “keep an open mind and learn as much as you can!” Shelly said, “SELACO WIB helped me with my resumé and helped me by being all around positive people! The workshops were helpful and gave me a chance to meet new people.”
