An Army veteran, Sheila looked for work for almost two years after
she was laid off from a position as a claims adjuster. Lake County
Workforce Development funded her to get an Associate degree in
Human Services. As a part of her studies, Sheila completed an
externship at a non-profit agency specializing in behavioral health.
Upon completing her degree, Sheila was offered a full-time position
at that agency as a client services representative. Sheila advises
others to use the Job Center and tap into training scholarships.
James is a military veteran who went through a lengthy
unemployment that led to homelessness and health struggles. He
needed new skills to compete in today’s job market. Workforce
Development funded him for training as a professional commercial
truck driver. He obtained a CDL license and accepted a driving
position that almost doubles his past annual income. “Although times
were rough, Workforce Development provided hope during a very
bleak time in my life and helped me to defeat those challenges, and
I am very optimistic going into the future.”
