Meet Kori

Workforce Challenge

In January 2010, Kori was laid off from her position with a local counseling center for youth. She was in the process of completing her counseling degree, but did not yet have any professional certification or degree in that industry. This limited her job search in the counseling field, and she lacked experience in other areas.

Workforce Solution

Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC), WorkSource Bend, supported Kori with job search assistance, resume preparation, and also with support service dollars, via funding from the WIB (Oregon Workforce Alliance). Kori expanded her job search, while still attending training, and received assistance with several monthly utility bills on a one-time basis while she was receiving unemployment insurance.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kori found a job with a local drug and alcohol counseling agency, and completed her degree. She is now working full-time, and said she could not have made it without the assistance that she received from COIC.
