Meet Michael

Workforce Challenge

Michael's challenge was to find work after a nine month hiatus. He was working on getting back into the work world and was referred to me by his child support technician for coaching and employment assistance.

Workforce Solution

I taught him how to navigate Connecting Colorado to generate automated job matches for welders, diesel mechanics and mechanics. I provided him a list of job search websites and staffing agencies. We worked on developing a revised resume, and I coached him on his interviewing skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within a week Michael called to give me an update to advise that he had several employers calling him for interviews in the diesel mechanic industry. His starting position was with Y.R.C. Freight, but I recently spoke with Michael in September 2016, and he reported that he was working full time as a diesel mechanic for a major trucking company located in Denver.
