Meet Gary

Workforce Challenge

Gary had been laid off from a fabrication company in January 2009. In October of 2009 he had back surgery so had to quit his part time job. He had been applying for jobs in every type of business includng food service, manufacturing, education, and office. He just couldn’t get hired.

Workforce Solution

He applied for a quality assurance position at an area meat processing facility. The company inquired about the On-The-Job Training (OJT) program. Since Gary still fit the criteria of a dislocated worker, he was enrolled in March of 2010. His education and career assessments matched those needed for a quality assurance technician so he was placed in OJT program at$12.53 an hour.

Outcomes & Benefits

Gary will soon be employed one full year, an idea that seemed so unreachable two years ago.
