Pikes Peak Workforce Center

Meet Michael

Workforce Challenge

After working in the plumbing trade for more than two years, Michael faced a lay-off and needed work. Additionally, he wanted to change careers.

Workforce Solution

Michael visited the Pikes Peak Workforce Center early in his job search, opened a account, conducted a staff-assisted job search and was encouraged to attend custom hiring events being hosted in the Pikes Peak Workforce Center that day.

Outcomes & Benefits

Michael was hired as a telephone interviewer with a national research firm and started full-time the next week. “I never experienced anything like this,” said Michael. “Your team gave me confidence to start looking for work again, pointed out the hiring events and took a general interest in seeing me succeed. I’ll be telling everyone I know who is looking for a job to visit the Pikes Peak Workforce Center. You have to be willing to look for work, but they will help you out tremendously.”
