Meet Janet

Workforce Challenge

Janet came into our office in October 2014. She and her husband had owned their own company for three years but were forced to sell. Janet had bookkeeping experience but no formal education so was unable to find employment. Her husband was also unemployed.

Workforce Solution

Janet researched careers and decided to become a truck driver, which would give her a good income and job stability. Janet was approved for a Workforce Investment Act scholarship which enabled her to attend training and receive her Commercial Driver's License-A.

Outcomes & Benefits

Janet was hired by a local company to drive a truck. She is making a good salary and has full benefits for her and her husband. She is extremely grateful to the Adams County Workforce & Business Center for all of the assistance.
