Meet Daniel

Workforce Challenge

Despite having work experience, actively sending out applications and reporting for interviews, Daniel was having difficulty finding work because of a felony on his record.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Investment Board enrolled Daniel in a 3-day, reentry workshop, specifically designed for individuals with prior convictions. He received one-on-one counseling, and learned appropriate interviewing skills and resume writing techniques. He applied his new skills to start a career in construction.

Outcomes & Benefits

Initially, Daniel found a job as a carpenter with Gorman Roofing Services. He, then, applied for and accepted a position at Casey Industrial as a construction carpenter, increasing his wages by 66%. He describes his experience with the Workforce Investment Board as essential to his current success, stating, “I don't believe I would be where I am today had it not been for your help and the skills I've learned."
