Meet Eric

Workforce Challenge

Before his layoff from a major aircraft manufacturer, Eric was employed for many years as an avionics technician. His other work experience was in the retail grocery industry as a produce clerk/produce section manager. Eric received unemployment insurance for over a year and the local labor market showed very little demand for his skills in the aviation industry. He could not find a job on his own.

Workforce Solution

With funds from a National Emergency Grant, The Oregon Workforce Alliance/Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC) assisted Eric with a 6 month On-the-Job Training opportunity at a local manufacturing company. The employer identified Eric as an excellent training candidate and we developed a training plan that would provide Eric with new skills to enhance his list of qualifications. We were also able to reimburse a portion of Eric’s wages while in training using the On-the-Job Training National Emergency Grant.

Outcomes & Benefits

Once the On-the-Job Training period ended, Eric transitioned to full time employment is an now learning new skills as an Electronics Assembler/Technician. Congratulations, Eric!
