Workforce Challenge

Noel is a transitioning Army reservist, retiring after 24 years of service. In his civilian role, he worked locally as an analyst and facilitator on defense contracts. When his last contract ended in March 2016, he was referred to the Pikes Peak Workforce Center where veterans receive priority of service.

Workforce Solution

Since March, Noel attended several Pikes Peak Workforce Center job seeker workshops including Build a Basic Resume, Create a Better Resume, and How to Make the Job Fair Work for You. He attended the Spring Adult Job Fair and completed Job Search 401: LinkedIn and Your Job Search. Additionally, he conducted mock interviews with his Veteran's team career counselor and worked closely with his counselor to gain feedback on his resumes before submitting job applications.

Outcomes & Benefits

In December, Noel was hired full time as a mobilization and deployment plans specialist with the U.S. Army at Fort Carson. “Your workshops taught me how to tailor my resumes to specific positions and my veteran’s counselor provided excellent feedback before I submitted each application,” said Noel. “I believe that was a huge key to my success. I would advise all veterans to take advantage of services available at the Pikes Peak Workforce Center."
