Meet Mike

Workforce Challenge

Mike was self-employed as an Auto Insurance Consultant and had a thriving business until late 2007. Due to the failing Car Industry, Mike went out of business by June of 2008. The economy took its toll once more, when Mike was let go from his part-time position as a Nigh Auditor. Mike lacked a degree and formal occupational training.

Workforce Solution

Mike began Greater Omaha’s WIA program in November 2008. Interest Assessments indicated that Professional Truck Driver was a viable employment goal for Mike.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within two weeks following the completion of Truck Driver training, Mike had secured a position with a trucking company based out of Kansas. He has been gainfully employed since April 2009 earning approximately $24.00 per hour and he is very happy. Mike is responsible for his own success, but WIA assisted him in reaching his employment goal.
