Meet Patricia

Workforce Challenge

Patricia was laid off after working for the same company for over thirty years as a Quality Assurance/Testing Manager. Patricia was struggling in her job search and was unfamiliar with new job search expectations.

Workforce Solution

Patricia was referred to the WIOA Dislocated Worker and Sector NEG programs. She began working with a Workforce Specialist and received intensive job search services such as mock interview, resume targeting review and reformatting and job search counseling every few weeks to provide support and positivity. She also received training funding to attain her PMP and ITIL certifications as employers see these as highly marketable certifications that display her knowledge and experience.

Outcomes & Benefits

Patricia was able to successfully obtain her ITIL Certification and is completing her PMP exam this summer. She accepted a job offer as a Project Manager and is making a good salary. Patricia credits her success to the coaching that she received as well as the quick turnaround of training funding from the WIOA/NEG programs.
