Meet Dawn

Workforce Challenge

At a career fair event at the Pueblo Community College-Fremont Campus, Dawn, a recent graduate, spoke with one of the Canon City Workforce Center team members, John. She expressed that while she was very impressed with the event, she felt that she was at a point in her life where she didn't just want a job; she really wanted a career using her proven customer service skills to help people and make a difference in their lives.

Workforce Solution

John had just heard about a case manager position at the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments, a state contractor administering workforce programs. Upon meeting Dawn, he immediately thought that her maturity, friendly demeanor, and customer-centered skills would make her an ideal candidate for the position. He encouraged Dawn to apply for the position right away.

Outcomes & Benefits

Dawn followed John's advice and applied for the position at the Upper Arkansas Area Council Of Governments as an Employment Specialist. She had an interview and was hired right away, beginning employment in May 2015.

Dawn says, "I am very thankful that I stopped at the Canon City Workforce Center's table at the Pueblo Community College-Fremont Campus Career Fair and spoke with John, where opportunity knocked for me. Cheerfully, Dawn."
