Meet Mark

Workforce Challenge

Mark is a job seeker who has experienced an extended period of unemployment but is determined to find, not just a job, but a lifelong career.

Workforce Solution

After discussing his long term employment goals with a Workforce Professional, Mark was able to identify an opportunity to work as a CNC operator; however, he was missing some of the skills needed to completely qualify for the job. After speaking with the employer, Mark was offered the option to work in an on-the-job (OJT) training situation for 6 months so he could learn all the skills required to successfully perform that job. Once training had concluded the employer was very satisfied with outcome and offered Mark the job.

Outcomes & Benefits

A few months after Mark was exited from the program he was given a raise, six months later he was promoted to night foreman and given over a three dollar an hour increase in pay. The employer stated that "This is one great success story as to how Kansas WorkforcONE has changed Marks life!"
