American Job Center, Jefferson County

Meet Lisa

Workforce Challenge

Lisa was referred to the American Job Center (AJC) by the Jeffco Prosperity Project to see what was missing in her career development. She had worked for one company for five years making a very low wage with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Behavior. She was applying for jobs that matched her degree and was not getting much response.

Workforce Solution

AJC staff were able to help Lisa reformat her resume to better market her knowledge, skills, and abilities. Lisa had identified a position she was very interested in and wanted to apply for it. She took the suggestions and re-tooled her resume to focus on that position.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lisa received notification for an interview right away. After several weeks, she was hired by the Child Care Assistant Program with an offer that was almost double what she was making at her last job. Congratulations, Lisa! Keep up the good work!
