Meet Dean

Workforce Challenge

Dean King had been recently laid off from his former position as an account manager with a large company when he first made contact with Frederick County Workforce Services. He came to FCWS with an interest in a new career opportunity in supply chain management and medical logistics that would require the acquisition of new skills as well as related work experience.

Workforce Solution

After enrolling in WIA, Dean was connected with one of the center's business customers, Frederick Memorial Hospital - an organization that agreed to bring Dean on board as an intern. After completing his internship, Dean was invited to participate in a six-week on-the-job training opportunity with FMH.

Outcomes & Benefits

This experience proved to be so successful that Dean was eventually hired into a permanent position at the hospital within his new field of interest.
Dean's story is a great example of how WIA can help someone change careers and how business services can provide the critical link between the job seeker and available employment opportunities.Dean continues to speak highly of FCWS to anyone he knows who is in search of a new career opportunity. He is very thankful to FCWS for making such valuable connections on his behalf.
