Meet William

Workforce Challenge

William is a 64-year-old job seeker who has been actively seeking employment since he was laid off in January, 2015.

Outcomes & Benefits

After approximately nine months of job searching, William has obtained employment as a school bus driver for Durango School District. He remained positive, motivated and determined throughout his job search. He is very happy with the assistance the Workforce Center staff has provided him to include the use of the resource area.
