Meet Emmanuel

Workforce Challenge

After working at a power plant for nine years, Emmanuel was laid off and was lost as to where to go. He was profiled for unemployment and required to register with the WFC.

Workforce Solution

While receiving Wagner Peyser services, Emmanuel learned about WIOA and considered CDLA training, but he didn't know where to start. We assisted in helping him look for a school, and he was approved to go to CDLA training through WIOA. We were able to waive his job search requirement while he was focusing on his schooling. Once he completed his training, we were able to assist him in getting his HAZMAT endorsement.

Outcomes & Benefits

Emmanuel found local CDLA employment as a driver. He was very excited to be able to work locally and his starting pay was higher than his previous job, and he would get a raise after just 90 days of employment. Emmanuel let me know he is happy and plans to stay there for a while.
