Meet Carrie

Workforce Challenge

When Carrie first came to Michigan Works! as a PATH client, she was unemployed and had poor self-confidence. In addition, she had barriers to employment such as no driver's license or transportation. She was also lacking childcare.

Workforce Solution

Michelle, Case Manager Trainer, and Mary, Talent Specialist, worked with Carrie one-on-one. Michelle was able to help Carrie locate and secure childcare and JSJE assistance, as well as help with a one-time auto purchase and auto insurance, while Mary guided Carrie in her job search and resume creation.

Outcomes & Benefits

Thanks to the counseling and efforts of the Michigan Works! staff, Carrie was able to obtain full-time employment as a dishwasher at The Flour Garden. Through Michigan Works!, Carrie learned that by taking things one step at a time, you will get there. Carrie stated, “They helped me build a new confidence in myself and helped me realize where I needed help. Michigan Works! made sure I had reliable transportation and gave me ideas as to where I should look for work before I got a job.”
