Meet Laurie

Workforce Challenge

Laurie, a 47-year-old mother of one, applied for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) in March, 2010. At that time, she also enrolled into the JOBS (WIA) program.

Workforce Solution

Laurie attended the Career Building Workshop through Jobs Service North Dakota, which helps people with soft skills, resume writing, interviewing skills, and life skills. She began looking for work and applied for work as in customer service at a temporary employment services company. After a month with no news, the JOBS staff called a contact at the firm to check on the status of Dawn's application. This extra attention helped Dawn land a phone interview the same day.

Outcomes & Benefits

After just a phone interview, Dawn was hired to start work on 8/31/10. She continues to work at Manpower, Inc. and is enjoying her job very much.
