Greg became a dislocated worker after working at the same employer for 17 years. He quickly found out he needed to seek services from the Livingston Workforce Services since he had been out of the job market for so long. He determined that the trucking industry was a field that he could pursue that would make up the wages he lost at his employer. He completed CDL training and was quickly offered several positions as a truck driver. After a few weeks, he determined which company would be the best fit for him and started driving over the road, earning almost $1000 per week!

Shana enrolled in classes at Heartland Community College shortly after seeking services from the Livingston Workforce Services. At the young age of 20 years old, she had her high school diploma but was working for a marginal wage at a local fast food restaurant. She had intentions of becoming a medical assistant, but was unsure of how to go about it. With the help of Workforce Services staff, she completed the Clinical Medical Assistant program at HCC and was soon employed at Dermatology and Mohs Surgical Institute, making $4.00 more per hour than at her previous position.
