Chad Smith Receives WorkOne Achievement Award

INDIANAPOLIS- Chad Smith of Clinton was presented with the WorkOne Achievement Award for overcoming several employment barriers and pursuing a better life for himself. He received the award today in a ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse.

After serving in the military, Smith found himself working as a union construction laborer, but wanted consistent, year-round employment. He was successful in finding a job with a local company as a machine operator, but soon found himself downsized and again looking for work. At his local WorkOne, Smith attended job search, resume, and career interest workshops, where he became interested in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining. Utilizing services and education opportunities available through WorkOne, Smith attained a National Career Readiness Certificate through WorkKeys, and was able to complete CNC training at Ivy Tech. He completed his training and found his current job in only eleven months.

“After serving in the United States Army and Navy for a combined twelve years, Chad came to WorkOne in search of a steady, rewarding career,” said Steven J. Braun, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “Through Chad’s strict work ethic, and the help of WorkOne, he now has a job that he loves in an in-demand industry.”

The WorkOne Achievement Awards are awarded by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development to 12 individuals for their outstanding accomplishments while participating in the workforce development system. Twelve awards were also presented to employers who partner with WorkOne for their contribution to growing Indiana’s economy and commitment to their community. All of today’s recipients were nominated for the award by their local WorkOne center.
