Workforce Challenge

Andrea was unemployed and needed assistance with her job search. She was referred to Michigan Works! from the Department of Health and Human Services and enrolled in the AEP/PATH program.
Andrea worked with Talent Specialist Mary on her job search, as well as Case Manager Trainers Michelle and Liz.

Workforce Solution

Michigan Works! referred Andrea to check out Starbest Construction, as they were hiring full-time general laborers.

“I came to Michigan Works! to participate in the PATH program and was informed that Starbest Construction needed a worker,” says Andrea. “On my lunch break from Michigan Works! PATH program work, I went to Starbest Construction and got hired on the spot!”

Outcomes & Benefits

Thanks to the referral from Michigan Works!, Andrea was able to quickly secure full-time employment. Andrea said she learned that it’s okay to ask for help and assistance when needed, because you can be surprised at what can be accomplished and change in one day.
