Meet Tim

Workforce Challenge

Tim Mondy was a recipient of a large reduction in force by Northrop Grumman. He was introduced to AAWDC’s services through a Rapid Response event held on-site before his end date. Tim was a highly-skilled individual with a professional background, so this was a difficult transition for him. Initially, it was important for him to know that local help existed to get him back on his feet.

Workforce Solution

He worked with the Rapid Response Team, who introduced him to services provided by the Professional Outplacement Assistance Center (POAC). He also enrolled with a Career Advisor to receive more intensive services, including resume feedback, creation of a LinkedIn profile, as well as general encouragement and focus.
In addition, Tim co-enrolled in the Pathways to Cybersecurity Careers Consortium training program, and entered classes at Anne Arundel Community College. The cybersecurity program was a great fit for him, due to his engineering background and extensive experience with hardware design. He excelled in the cybersecurity classes and gained CompTIA Security+ and Network+ certifications.

Outcomes & Benefits

These certifications made him more marketable and showed future employers that he was interested and able to learn new skills. He secured employment using his new skills at MEI Technologies as a Senior Systems Engineer.
