Meet Juan

Workforce Challenge

Juan was experiencing a difficult time in his life when he attended a job search and job readiness orientation with Workforce staff as part of a program with Conejos County. Juan exhibited a genuine eagerness to improve his skills and find employment that would help his family. However, he lacked experience that would assist him in gaining sustainable employment.

After sharpening his job search and job readiness skills as a result of teamwork between Conejos County and Workforce, Juan was ready to find work. The South Central Workforce Staff and The Training Advantage (WIOA Partner), along with an employer, teamed up to find him employment. After learning of a job opening with a local lumber yard, The Training Advantage set up an on-the-job training program.

The employer was able to obtain assistance with wage reimbursement during the training period. With partnerships and team work, improbable becomes possible.
