Workforce Challenge

After 32 years with the same employer, Mary found herself laid-off and searching for work. In her career, she had served multiple roles including work in customer service, training, administrative assistance, and computer help desk work.

Workforce Solution

In February, Mary visited the Pikes Peak Workforce Center early in her job search and attended multiple workshops including Introduction to the Pikes Peak Workforce Center, From Job Loss to Job Search, Create a better Resume, and Preparing for the Interview. Additionally, she attended a variety of skills testing.

Outcomes & Benefits

In October, Mary was hired as a member care representative with an organization that provides certifications and school accreditations. “It had been 32 years since I looked for a job, and things changed – resumes, interviews,online job searches, and the culture of the thank-you note,” said Mary. “Your team provided encouragement and insight as to what is appropriate for today’s job culture. The Pikes Peak Workforce Center was very helpful and I advise others to visit your team."
