Meet Marissa

Workforce Challenge

Marissa was long-term unemployed and on her last semester to complete her BSN. She wanted a career so she would not have to face another layoff. She lost job at a chain restaurant as the company closed. She was able to find a part-time, stop-gap employment, but was unemployed when she came to WFC due to her conflicting schedule with school. She was not able to keep up while pursuing her new career. She was living and relying on parents for full financial support as well as living off of student loans and no income.

Workforce Solution

Marissa was determined to qualify for Hire for Colorado (Governor's initiative) and was approved for $4000 in WIOA funding to complete her degree.

Outcomes & Benefits

Marissa was able to graduate and find employment within a year of visiting the WFC. She is employed full time in her desired field as a Registered Nurse earning more than 300% more than her waitress salary. Marissa stated the following:"Hi Jeanette,
I love my job! It is everything I have ever wanted from my degree!" Marissa has achieved her ultimate goal!
