Meet Jeri

Workforce Challenge

Jeri had been unemployed for six months and was seeking a career in the financial industry. She attended the BACK TO WORK 50+ program informational session in January 2015 and really wanted to work 1-on-1 with a workforce specialist because she felt she lacked confidence in herself and her skills.

Workforce Solution

Jeri began working with a workforce specialist on targeting her resume and improving her interviewing skills. Her workforce specialist recommended that she attend hiring events to help her practice and meet face-to-face with employers.

Outcomes & Benefits

In February 2015, Jeri attended a mortgage hiring event at Arapahoe/Douglas Works! and was offered a full-time position as a loan consultant. She was extremely pleased with the assistance she received and the confidence she gained.
