Gary Finnigan is a veteran that connected through word of mouth to Workforce Connections about the WIOA program. He wanted to attend Diesel Driving School in Sun Prairie to get his CDL, having found that he really enjoyed driving long distances. He was the primary income of the household and wanted to obtain skills to get a better paying job so he could support his family better. He needed help paying for training, fees and housing associated with school. Gary graduated recently from school and obtained his CDL license. He and I focused on updating his resume and highlighting transferable skills from his past driving and automotive and maintenance experience from the Navy, and finding a job! He has applied at a few already and had a few conversations with recruiters about opportunities.
