Meet Fred and Carlos

Workforce Challenge

Meet Veterans Fred and Carlos. Both struggled to find employment. Veterans returning home often face the huge task of adapting to civilian life again and obtaining employment.
Fred is a vet who served in the Army and fell in love with the Colorado Rockies.
Carlos also served in the Army and was released in September, immediately relocating to Colorado.

Workforce Solution

Fred has been working with a Workforce Center career coach to see what jobs are available for the winter as he has seasonal employment during the summer.
Carlos heard about help being available to him through a presentation the Frisco Workforce Center staff did at CMC in September 2015. Carlos came to the Workforce Center, received vocational guidance and is working with a career coach to determine a career pathway.

Outcomes & Benefits

Fred obtained employment at Virgin Island Ski Rentals. He also has an interview with Keystone Resort and would like to work another year as a lift operator.
Carlos currently has one job offer and two interviews. Carlos has accomplished this in just four days.
On November 10th, 2015, the Frisco Workforce Center staff honored these Veterans, and both were treated to lunch with the Frisco staff at a favorite local restaurant. Thank you both for your service!
