Meet Robert

Workforce Challenge

Robert Hamrick had been employed for over two decades as a microfilm and microfiche scanner with the same employer when the company eliminated his position due to a reduction in workforce. Because there was not a high demand for his former job in the current labor market, Mr. Hamrick realized he needed to explore some different alternatives in a new and changing economy.

Workforce Solution

After applying for Unemployment Insurance, he was instructed to attend an Early Intervention workshop at Frederick County Workforce Services (FCWS). There, Mr. Hamrick began his search for a new position and a new start. He received career counseling services, had his resume critiqued by one of several Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRWs) at FCWS, utilized the tools and services available in the Career Resource Lab, and attended training classes that would provide him with the knowledge he needed to succeed in his job search.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mr. Hamrick now has a full-time position with Wegman’s, the #3 ranked (out of 100) “Best Companies to Work For” by FORTUNE Magazine. He has a full benefits package and is excited about the opportunity to advance his career with a company that has a solid reputation for employee development and internal promotions.
