Public-Sector Employers Benefit From KRA Workforce Preparation

Osiris enrolled at one of the five KRA San Diego Metro Region Career Centers, operated for the San Diego Workforce Partnership, and discovered that a realistic Individual Employment Plan, job-skills training with national credentialing, and targeted KRA/San Diego workshops were the keys to attracting an employer—2,600 miles away!

Focused on a government-services administrative career, Osiris received exceptional service from Career Agent Jordan Finkelstein in developing an IEP that included a WIOA-funded Administrative Professional/ Microsoft Office Specialist certification program, with an online option, and workshops on How to Write a Federal Resume and Federal Jobs Applications.

Osiris, and 8-year old son, has adjusted successfully to a big climate change…and a little west-to-east coast culture shock, and is completing her Microsoft training/certification online.
