DavidsonWorks Funds Dislocated Worker’s Work Experience

DebraMurrayAfter Debra Murray’s unemployment income was exhausted, Debra paid out-ofpocket for a program at FTCC and became a Certified Electronic Medical Records Specialist. Since Debra lacked experience she had a hard time finding a job. Debra worked with a DavidsonWorks’ job coach and was selected as a WIA Work Experience candidate. WIA funded Debra’s Work Experience (3 month paid internship) at the Thomasville Medical Center in the Medical Records Department. When placed on her work site, Debra gave 200% hard work and networked with other hospital employees. Because of this, Debra was able to secure fulltime employment with HealthPort (a contracted healthcare agency at the hospital) as a Release of Information Specialist.
