Meet Brian. CTWorks Helped Get his Career Back on Track
Brian shared his story when Congressman Joe Courtney stopped by the Enfield CTWorks / American Job Center location, in early August. Brian has been laid off three times since 2008, as his jobs keep moving south. Brian likes this "employment office," stating there is a stereotype out there that it is an "UN-employment office." But Brian knows he has gotten the skills and support he needs for the bridge to "Employment." He starts a new job at a United Technology Corp, after five months of looking.
Brian noted in the Hartford Courant article, regarding his last layoff: "there were 30 buyers who lost their jobs the same day he did in 2008, and he said the ones who found the best jobs took advantage of CTWorks and job clubs. Even unemployed people can help each other network, he said, and he noted that he was provided with some great job leads."
