Meet Stephen

Workforce Challenge

Laid off from a sanitation company due to lack of work, Stephen visited Michigan Works! seeking employment assistance.

Workforce Solution

Staff helped him create a resume, entering him into the job pool and informing him of new job openings. They also showed him how to use the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website, including how to conduct his own job search and apply to jobs online. Additionally, Stephen participated in mock interviews and attended the WalMart Career Fair.

Outcomes & Benefits

Shortly after the fair, he was asked to interview and he was hired as a night Janitorial/Maintenance Worker. He says, “Yolanda from the Onaway Michigan Works! helped me create a resume. She sat down and helped me apply to several jobs online in the last several months. Yolanda has called to inform me of new postings in the area. She gave me useful information to obtain my current job.” Grateful for the job search assistance, he stopped by the office and thanked the staff. He says that he is enjoying his job!
