Workforce Challenge

Tim was unemployed and having difficulty finding a job. He'd been self-employed during the previous two years, but his business had closed. Those who are self-employed are not eligible for unemployment benefits, so he had no income, and needed to work as quickly as possible. He had heard through a friend that the Alliance Worknet could help him find employment.

Workforce Solution

Tim visited Alliance WorkNet and was enrolled in WIA services, which provided some basic job search and skills training to make him more marketable. In addition, he was placed into an On the Job training contract that allowed him to start making some money right away, even though the OJT position was below his skill level.

Outcomes & Benefits

During the OJT period, he was able to transition into a more challenging role and a better paying position at the same company. He is enjoying his new job, and says that the program at the Alliance Worknet has made a profound and positive impact in his life.
