Meet Piero

Workforce Challenge

Piero was a customer in the Employment First Program. He was a plumber by trade, but his plumbing license had expired. To further complicate issues, his language issues poised a problem in communicating effectively.

Workforce Solution

The first step was to get Piero some good interview clothes. We gave him some clothing vouchers with specific directions to pick a good interview suit. He came to our Opportunity Fair with his new suit on and his resume in hand. I personally introduced him to two agencies.

Outcomes & Benefits

Piero was offered not only one job, but two jobs. One was part time work; the other was full time employment. Piero took the full time job and is working on saving money to get his plumbing license activated. Good job in never giving up, Piero!
