Meet Bianca

Workforce Challenge

Bianca Williams was initially enrolled into WIA on 4/16/2009 for job search assistance and possible training. She had been unemployed for over a year and knew that she needed the right resources to return to work.

Workforce Solution

Bianca was approved for WIA funding to complete her Paralegal Certificate. She only had two semesters left, but the tuition assistance and funding for the purchase of textbooks put her on the path to completing her training. Bianca was also approved for transportation assistance in order to get back and forth to her scheduled classes. She attended several workshops at the OneStop, including a Budgeting workshop.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon successful completion of her paralegal training, Bianca found full time employment in her field as an Estate Clerk with Richland County Probate Court making $12/hr. Bianca hopes to work her way up to a legal assistant in the near future.
