Renee sought services from the Livingston Workforce Services because of her poor work history. She moved amongst several employment agencies that were unable to provide long term work. She knew becoming certified as a nursing assistant would open up many opportunities for her to find full time work with benefits. Since she had been certified many years prior, she pursued a recertification class. She was reintroduced to those skills she learned many years ago and performed a few practice applications so that she could sit for the certification exam.She passed the exam and became employed full time just a few short weeks later!

Greg became a dislocated worker after working at the same employer for 17 years.

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!
