Meet Patricia

Workforce Challenge

As a part-time Web Manager within a municipality's IT Department, Patricia had a solid background in education, but she wanted to find a more permanent position in the field of web content management. She visited Workforce Boulder County (WfBC) in November 2015, looking for resume assistance and hoping to hone her job search skills.

Workforce Solution

After her initial face-to-face assessment with Employment and Training Specialist, Joni, Patricia determined that additional computer training would greatly enhance her skill set and make her more marketable to employers. She was approved for the WIOA grant in order to obtain the necessary training through the Digital Work Center. She enrolled in several courses, including Java Script, Web Development, SEO for Business, Social Media, Google Analytics and Word Press.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing some of the Digital Work Center courses, Patricia was thrilled to report that her temporary position with the City of Boulder's IT Department had become full-time! Patricia credits WfBC with helping her land the job. She said that the workshops and the positive energy of WfBC staff were a huge support.
