Meet Michael

Workforce Challenge

Michael did not have a computer at home. To conduct an effective job search, he needed access to internet service and a computer.

Workforce Solution

Michael used a computer at the American Job Center to search for job postings, apply for positions online, and check email. Career Center staff provided him with job search assistance, labor market information and vocational guidance. The Business Development Coordinator met with him often to discuss employers who were currently hiring for specific positions that he was interested in.

Outcomes & Benefits

The American Job Center hosted a Now Hiring event for a major manufacturing company in the area. The Business Development Coordinator talked to Michael about the company and recommended that hd apply online before the event. The day of the hiring event Michael met with their HR Manager at the Workforce Center and was scheduled to meet with a hiring manager at their facility. Michael received a job offer for a full-time position at an excellent starting wage and with a full benefit package!
