Meet Manuel

Workforce Challenge

Manuel was struggling to find work and taking odd jobs wherever he could find them when he heard about Alliance Worknet and the training programs they offered. The Resource Center at Alliance Worknet gave Manuel access to office equipment like printers, computers, and copiers to search for and apply for jobs, but he really needed some training assistance to be marketable in the workforce.

Workforce Solution

His case manager helped Manuel identify a welding as a profession of interest, and helped him obtain funding for a certification course.

Outcomes & Benefits

Manuel received his welding certification, and placed into a paid internship that allowed him to obtain experience using the skills he'd learned. While he was still an intern, he was offered a full-time welding job which he immediately accepted. "The welding I do now is different. I am learning a lot more in this job and getting paid decent money!" says Manuel
