Meet Lynne

Workforce Challenge

While Lynne could find part-time work, she wanted to find full-time work. She sought assistance from Michigan Works!

Workforce Solution

Through Michigan Works!, Lynne was able to generate leads on the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website, and the available computers enabled her to apply online. She also attended the Michigan Works! career fair prep classes and the career fair itself. During the career fair follow-up, Lynne worked with Talent Specialist Marjorie to revise her resume and discuss job search goals. During this same time, Air Way Automation contacted Julie at Michigan Works! to seek assistance in filling a purchasing department position. Based on her qualifications, Lynne seemed like a good fit, and her resume was submitted for the position.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lynne was interviewed and offered the position. She was thrilled to accept! She says, “A big thank you goes out to Marjorie at MW! Grayling for proofing my resume more times than either of us care to count! Thankfully, she has always kept me in mind when she sees postings that might fit well with my experiences. I firmly believe that my success since January of 2015 is mainly attributed to the fact that I removed graduation dates from my resume at Marjorie’s suggestion! Now I’ve finally found a real job, with real benefits and a real wage in northern MI!"
