Meet Louis

Workforce Challenge

Louis Green had worked for a regional retailer's corporate offices for 20 years, in a six-figure job, when he was unexpectedly let go. He was in a daze for a little while after, but managed to get a job selling cars for about a year. Finding that selling cars was brutal, and unhappy with his position, Louis knew something needed to change.

Workforce Solution

Louis went to WorkSource, where he was accepted into WorkForce Central’s Dislocated Worker Program. Through the program he was able to get funding to go to Clover Park Technical College’s electrician program. After successfully completing the program, he started looking for jobs.

Outcomes & Benefits

Louis is now employed with Evergreen Fire and Security. He enjoys his work, as well as the consistent schedule and being able to have weekends off. He earns enough money to take care of himself and his family, and even lost 40 pounds as a result of his new job and subsequent lift in spirits. Congratulations, Louis!
