Meet Betty

Workforce Challenge

After extensive traveling, Betty developed large gaps in her employment history. She was also a recent victim of stroke and as such, she was receiving disability benefits. Then, Betty decided she was ready to go back to work. However, she was unable to find a job. She felt that her age and lack of computer skills were barriers to employment.

Workforce Solution

Betty visited the Mesa County Workforce Center for assistance. After a skills review, she was referred to an open position with Crossmark as a product demonstrator. However, Betty did not have the needed computer skills required for the job. To apply, she was referred to computer classes at the library and received one-on-one coaching.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing the classes and coaching, Betty was eligible to apply and she was hired by Crossmark. Betty says that she "enjoys going to work and now has more self-confidence."
