Workforce Challenge

Azirius came into Alliance Worknet after turning 18. Due to a learning disability, he'd been eligible for Social Security Disability income in the past, but he was no longer qualified since he was not in school. He was unsure about the future: he wanted to try college, and he wanted a job, but needed help finding the right program and opportunity.

Workforce Solution

Azirius enrolled in the CareerQuest Program and received guidance and support in achieving his goals. He attended the Alliance Worknet workshops, which helped him understand how to prepare for job searching, and he completed the Employment Preparation and Retention training program provided by Goodwill, which helped him understand what employers expected.

In October, 2010, he was referred to the weekly McDonald’s hiring recruitment on Oakdale and Floyd Ave in Modesto. Azirius was also assisted with registering for disability services at Modesto Jr. College.

Outcomes & Benefits

Azirius was hired by McDonald's Corporation after attending the job fair. In addition, he has registered at Modesto Jr. College and is looking forward to enrolling this summer. Azirius never thought he would be able to attain employment and further his education. The services he received from CareerQuest/Alliance Worknet helped him see that it was possible to attain his goals.
