Machala

Workforce Challenge

Machala moved to Norfolk from a larger town looking for a better opportunity for herself and her teenage son. She began her job search looking for full-time employment with benefits. After much searching Machala was able to find a supervisor position with a pizza establishment but no benefits were available. She used the Nebraska Department of Labor Career Center in Norfolk to continue her search.

Workforce Solution

Through the Career Center she was referred to a part-time position with a grocery distribution facility. Machala continued to work both jobs trying to make ends meet. Machala didn’t have the college education to move immediately into a full-time office position, but after helping in many aspects of the company a full-time position became available. The company saw her capabilities and eagerness to learn.

Outcomes & Benefits

After a little over one year with the grocery distribution center, Machala was offered a full time position with benefits.
