Meet Linda

Workforce Challenge

Linda was laid off from a large aviation company after 15 years of service. She was having a real challenge finding employment and thought that had to do with her being an older worker.

Outcomes & Benefits

Less than a month after completing her training and earning her Certificate, Linda was able to obtain employment as a Sheet Metal Assembler for another large aviation company.
