Meet Rafael

Workforce Challenge

Rafael came into the Sterling WFC Center seeking employment. He was very upset. He had just been laid off from an employer for whom he had worked three years. He said, "I gave everything I have to that company." He said he was laid off without a reason. He did not understand. He said "I have to work. I have a wife and two small children." We explained that it might be that the company was looking at their bottom financial line and felt it necessary. We gave him another option of a local job fair.

Workforce Solution

workforce center staff help Rafael to realize that the layoff probably had nothing to do with him, but was due to the financial situation of the company. AND that he would be able to get another job. Upon the recommendation to the local job fair going on, he quickly left and went to the fair.

Outcomes & Benefits

A few days after the job fair, Rafael came running up to the office and said, "I was hoping to get here on time. I got the job and start working on Tuesday." He was very happy for the help he had received at the Sterling WFC.
