Meet James

Workforce Challenge

James was laid off in September 2016 from his position as a director of systems engineering. He felt that his biggest barriers to employment were his lack of certifications and his prior work history and salary.

Workforce Solution

James was referred to the WIOA program in March 2017 and was enrolled into the NEG and TEC-P programs. He attended several workshops including resume writing, interviewing, and LinkedIn. He was able to participate in a mock interview that he credits with helping boost his confidence for his interviews. Through funding provided by the TEC-P program, James was able to attend training for CompTIA Security+ and Certified Ethical Hacking.

Outcomes & Benefits

James is still currently working on obtaining his certifications, but he was able to secure employment after being unemployed for a year. He is currently working as a technical
architect earning a good salary.
