Meet Cassie

Workforce Challenge

Cassie attends Front Range Community College and is working toward a degree in Business Administration. She has 16 years of teaching experience, but is ready to leave the world of education and seek new employment opportunities in a business environment. She was finding it challenging due to lack of experience.

Workforce Solution

In an effort to gain more experience in the professional business world, Cassie sought out internship opportunities through Boulder County. Workforce Boulder County (WfBC) Internship Coordinator, Stephen, helped Cassie land an internship position as an Administrative Aide with Boulder County Community Services (BCCS). Cassie also took advantage of several WfBC workshops, including Career Exploration, Resume Builder, and Interview Preparation.

Outcomes & Benefits

Cassie is mid-way through her seven-month internship with BCCS. Department staff have been impressed by her professionalism, initiative, and personal growth. Cassie has applied for a full-time position with the county's Housing and Human Services department, and has made it to second round interviews! Cassie credits WfBC, saying, "Thanks to the opportunities and training provided by WfBC, I am feeling confident and optimistic about my future!"
