Meet Justin

Workforce Challenge

Justin is a Retired US Army disabled veteran who moved to Montrose, CO. In the Army, he spent his career as an Intelligence Analyst and had no idea where to apply that amount of knowledge and training in the real world. He didn't have any local contacts, nor had he prepared a resume. After attending a local veterans' coffee social, he learned about a company in Montrose that would fit his experience perfectly and was utilizing the Workforce Center to find qualified candidates.

Workforce Solution

Justin walked into the Workforce Center and was greeted by Mr. Parr without waiting around or having to schedule an appointment. He had an interview with Rich, who explained the job opportunity and provided Justin with resources to help him build a solid resume. Justin went home that afternoon and put to great use the tools he was provided with and drafted a resume. After emailing the resume back to Rich to have it professionally reviewed, Rich gave Justin excellent advice and tips. Rich explained to Justin that his resume was his commercial and an opportunity to sell himself. Finally, Justin felt his confidence growing. Rich took Justin's completed and edited resume and personally emailed it to the company’s Operations Director.

Outcomes & Benefits

Justin received a call back after the Workforce Center submitted his resume and went in for an interview. After the interview, Justin said, "I NAILED IT!" Justin was hired as the Senior Intelligence Analyst and soon promoted to Analyst Manager overseeing all of the intelligence production for Travel Recon.

Justin said, "The Colorado Workforce Center in Montrose has a staff that is dedicated to ensuring you find the right fit based on your needs, skills and desires. I wish you my kind of success."
