Meet Allen

Workforce Challenge

As a senior citizen certified as a management consultant, Allen quit his job due to a conflict with ethics. With excellent credentials, he expected to find a new job easily. However, after searching for two years, Allen reached out to the American Job Center (AJC) for assistance.

Workforce Solution

Through the AJC, Allen joined the “Experienced Workers Job Club,” and he connected with staff members. He was given the opportunity to create and lead a 2-hour program which was titled, “Everything you ever wanted to know about consulting, but didn’t know who to ask.” Allen also participated in an intensive, three-day workshop on starting a consulting business.

Outcomes & Benefits

Prior to completing the workshop, Allen had already generated some clients. By workshop end, he had sent his first invoice. With a business plan in place, he has the potential to produce a livable income in the first year. Allen is especially proud that his first client received a 74:1 return on investment. Currently, he is working with over 20 new prospects. He says, "Thank you, AJC, for getting me back on my feet!"
