Meet Maggie

Workforce Challenge

Maggie was a dislocated worker who grew frustrated trying to find employment in the current economy. She was enrolled in the WIA and TAA programs for assistance with career research and training, if necessary. She made an effort to follow through with program requirements, but her focus was to gain employment.

Workforce Solution

At the Barnwell One-Stop office, Maggie expressed her desire to find any new employment quickly rather than re-training for a new field. She asked for assistance with job referrals, but she had little feedback on the applications she submitted. In August, 2009, a WIA Program Assistant helped her complete an application for a position with Shaw Industries, a flooring manufacturer. Maggie received encouragement and coaching from the staff.

Outcomes & Benefits

Several months later, in December, 2009, again with support from the Barnwell One Stop, Maggie was hired by Shaw Industries as an equipment operator. Congratulations, Maggie!
