Meet Jamie

Workforce Challenge

Although Jamie has a Bachelor's in Marketing & Accounting from Mongolia University, she couldn't find an accounting job. Her career was a series of temporary assignments until she found production work - but after 10 years there, she was laid off in 2012. She remained unemployed for 3 years, practically giving up on finding a career in her chosen field, since she had no work experience in America and no formal training in new accounting systems.

Workforce Solution

Ramon at Denver Workforce Services determined Jamie could best benefit and acquire the additional training she needed through placement in a paid On-the-Job Training position through the Training Subsidy Program. Jamie was connected with a small accounting and bookkeeping business in Denver to allow her to gain experience and expand her accounting skill set. The employer was awarded a training subsidy to offset the cost of training Jamie on current accounting and bookkeeping systems and software.

Outcomes & Benefits

Through assistance with the Training Subsidy Program, Jamie successfully completed her OJT and was hired as a permanent employee by the Denver accounting company where she trained. Jamie continues to apply her Bachelor's degree and her OJT experience to take on complex accounting and bookkeeping projects for her Denver employer.
