Meet Greg

Workforce Challenge

Greg had 10+ years of experience in the IT field, and he lost his last job of ten years due a lay off. He started his job hunt immediately after being laid off, but most jobs in his field either required or preferred a PMP certification. Even though he had several interviews and even second interviews, he didn’t receive any job offers.

Greg came into our office requesting assistance with tuition for Project Management training.

Workforce Solution

Greg enrolled in WIOA and received tuition assistance for PMP training, as well as continuous support from a WIOA case manager. Greg successfully completed his training and resumed his job hunt with the assistance of his case manager.

Outcomes & Benefits

A couple months after training completion, the investment paid off. Greg secured a PMP position with a major hospital making substantially more than what he was making at time of dislocation.
Greg’s case illustrates the impact WIOA can have in helping dislocated workers improve their marketability and wage potential.
