Meet Steve

Workforce Challenge

Steve's job seach was a total nightmare! He had been at it for almost a year with miserable results. Steve had landed multiple interviews, but had no luck in getting the job. Even his BS degree and years of experience weren't enough to seal the deal.

Workforce Solution

Steve learned from a fellow IT associate that Denver Workforce Development's TEC-P program for “veteran” workers of the IT field could help him. He checked out the detailed information at and called to enroll. Elaine at the Denver Office of Economic Development knew that Steve had the required skill sets; he just needed an "upgrade" to current industry standards. Steve attended the Digital Workshop Center in Fort Collins and obtained a certification in Web Design and Development.

Outcomes & Benefits

Shortly after he upgraded his skills, employers started to take notice of Steve's resume. Steve recently accepted an offer from Swiftpage, one of those employers impressed with his skills. He truly believes the recent certification helped in getting the position. Steve is totally excited to get started!
