Meet Susan

Workforce Challenge

Susan was referred to the WorkForce Center as part of the process of receiving social services assistance for herself and her daughter. She had been unable to find work and needed help.

Workforce Solution

At the WorkForce Center, Susan received assistance from the staff to prepare a resume and write cover letters. Financial assistance covered the costs of emergency car repairs and helped Susan find suitable interview clothing. Where needed, Susan was referred to additional community resources. Through her WFC Career Counselor, Susan was placed in an internship with a local government agency.

Outcomes & Benefits

Susan performed well in her internship, and stayed on when her internship was extended past the original end date. A bit later, she was hired in a full-time position within the same agency. She is now earning a great salary and benefits and is able to support herself and her daughter.
