Scott

Workforce Challenge

Scott, an IT professional, had a lot of experience in military and civilian employment, but lacked a Bachelors degree or recent certifications. He sought assistance from the Workforce Centers of South Central Kansas to polish up his resume, online job searching skills and interview techniques.

Workforce Solution

Scott worked with a workforce professional to customize his resume and job descriptions until he became comfortable doing this on his own. He also registered for email updates with online job search sites so he would be aware when new IT positions would post in Wichita. Scott and the workforce professional also discussed interviewing techniques, how to best prepare for interviews, and tips that would put him ahead of other candidates.

Outcomes & Benefits

Scott was offered an IT Management position with a starting salary of $57,000.
