Meet Beverly

Workforce Challenge

Beverly Tarver was laid off from her previous job at a materials processing company and had been unemployed since February 2009. She felt hopeless with no means to support herself. She was referred to the Workforce Investment Network (WIN) Job Center for assistance.

Workforce Solution

At the WIN Job Center Beverly connected with employment services that assessed her skills and helped match her with available openings. In June, 2010, Georgia Gulf, an employer qualified as an On the Job Training funds recipient, hired Beverly to begin training as a forklift driver.

Outcomes & Benefits

Beverly completed her OJT contract and was hired full time after her training period. She now has new hope and feels a renewed sense of financial independence. Congratulations, Beverly!
