Meet Mariah

Workforce Challenge

Mariah came into the WIOA program to get assistance with training. Mariah had a high school diploma, but she had no further training. She had worked in customer service, but that wasn't her true interest. She hoped to one day own her own business. Based on her goal, she decided that bookkeeping and accounting skills would really help her move toward success.

Workforce Solution

Mariah met with her workforce specialist and received training and transportation assistance to receive her Accounting Technician Certificate. Mariah also found part time work as a PBX operator to support herself during training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mariah earned her Accounting Technician Certificate, gaining experience in 10 keys and QuickBooks. Shortly after, Mariah was hired on as a full-time Refunds Associate. Mariah is very happy to be doing a job she's interested in and gaining work experience to help her reach her future goals.
