Meet Jeremiah

Workforce Challenge

Jeremiah worked for many different employers through temp agencies, but his employment was always part-time. Moving forward, he wanted to be hired full-time with the hopes of investing in one company for the long-term. He sought job search assistance from Michigan Works!

Workforce Solution

Working with Talent Specialist Barb, he was enrolled in the job pool. He also received career counseling and employability assessments. Michigan Staff! worked together with Jeremiah to develop the best plan moving forward and to search for on-the-job training (OJT) opportunities. His work experience matched him with a local employer. He applied for the position and was hired, pending OJT as a Machinist.

Outcomes & Benefits

The OJT helped improve his skills as he received an industry standard credential. Once training was completed, he was hired full-time. Michigan Works! also helped him purchase required work boots and tools. Jeremiah is excelling in his new position, and he looks forward to additional training (CNC Programming) when his employer is approved for STTF funds.
