Meet John

Workforce Challenge

Prior to his enrollment into the Adult WIA Program, John had been laid off from his drywall finisher job. He had not been successful in securing employment as work in the construction industry had slowed dramatically in the current economy. He was interested in truck driving, although he had no previous experience or training in this area.

Workforce Solution

With WIA tuition assistance, he attended a truck driving course that allowed him to obtain his Commercial Driver's License (CDL).

Outcomes & Benefits

In less than three weeks after finishing his training, he was on the job. John was quick to let his Greater Omaha (Tri County) case manager know of his success. “I have taken a job. They have offered me a regional driving position. The rate of pay will be $600 to $800 dollars a week. I actually had four pre-hire offers through the driving school and really had to do my homework to make a choice. That’s more offers than I’ve had in the past five months. Thanks for the new start!”
