Daren Beard

 Daren Beard had applied for employment at Morbark as a machine operator. Daren had little experience in that field. Daren had been laid off from a position where he was a service writer for a local ATV and Motorcycle Shop. Daren had been looking for work but was lacking the experience needed for many of the positions. Daren attended a profiling session in December and remembered hearing about the On-the-Job Training opportunity. Daren qualified and was enrolled into the Workforce Investment Act Dislocated Worker Program. He was able to receive assistance with an On-the-Job Training (OJT). The OJT helped Daren get his foot in the door and the receive training needed for that position and gain work experience.

 

Michigan Works! assisted Daren with the OJT contract with Morbark. Daren was able to get hired by Morbark without the required experience needed for the Machine Operator position. With this OJT he was able to learn a new skill and work for a reputable company.

 

Daren completed his OJT and is still employed as a Machine Operator at Morbark. Human Resourse Representative, Neelum Singh said, "Daren has already proven to be a great addition to the Morbark team." Daren is very happy with the outcomes. Daren said, "Thanks to the OJT program at Michigan Works! I was able to get a position without the required experience. I have gained new skills and a new career."
