Meet John

Workforce Challenge

John had been self-employed for the last 25 years as an oil field welder. He felt that there were numerous barriers in finding suitable employment such as being older, being Hispanic, having no degree and having the stigma of being an oil field worker who at the time had been unemployed for eight months.

Workforce Solution

Sola, a Client Services Technician at Employment Services of Weld County, provided John with a referral to the resume workshop. She also provided one-on-one job search assistance and assisted in helping him fill out job applications online.

Outcomes & Benefits

With Sola's help, John obtained a job in Denver in the field he enjoys, working the hours he requires and earning a decent amount of pay.
