Meet Carla

Workforce Challenge

Carla was laid off from her employment at a trucking company after 15 years of employment. She came to the KansasWORKS when her unemployment ran out to job search.

Workforce Solution

Carla was eligible as a dislocated worker and was enrolled in the WIA Program. With her employment specialist, they searched for opportunities for employment so she could get back to work as soon as possible. She was able to receive funding for OJT with Maurice Ptacek at Farm Bureau Services to become an insurance agent.

Outcomes & Benefits

Carla obtained her insurance license through her employer and has been working as an office assistant/agent for the past year. She reports that she loves her job! Both the employer and the job seeker were extremely satisfied with the work the employment specialist did.
