Carlos is a packer with a supplier of high-quality kitchen, bath and rough plumbing products, earning a steady income, and enjoying status as a productive member of society. But it wasn’t always that way.
Carlos ran into legal trouble that greatly limited his opportunities. Tired of dead-end jobs, he turned to Greater West Town’s Shipping & Receiving Program to pick up more specific technical skills. He studied 12 weeks of computerized inventory control, RF scanners, forklifting, UPS/FedEx Shipping, and OSHA standards.
When asked how the training at GWTP has helped him on the job, Carlos says,
“That’s easy! Most of the time on the job I’m doing the same exact things we learned in training. Forklift certification was helpful, and the staff really installed it in us to get the skills.”
It is evident to all his coworkers that Carlos has the full package: skills, good work habits, and great attitude. The company vice-president has seen Carlos in motion and says, “I wish I could clone him! When other people are standing around, Carlos is always working.”

To expand economic opportunity, the Illinois workNet® Portal and Program utilizes partnerships and technology to expand seamless and real-time access to workforce development resources aimed at individuals, employers, and workforce/education partners. Innovative partnerships span state economic development, workforce development, education agencies, and local workforce innovation boards along with their public and private partners, including local governments, community colleges, and non-profit organizations. Through partnerships that leverage technology, it realizes a common vision to plan for the economic futures of communities and provide a seamless array of services.
The Illinois workNet Portal System was launched in June 2005 by the Governor’s Illinois Workforce Innovation Board (IWIB) as the state’s workforce development portal. Since then, Illinois workNet has evolved to not only continue as the online source for local and statewide resources and tools to help individuals, employers, and workforce/education partners achieve their training and employment goals, but also as the source for facilitating statewide programs. Some of the most recent examples of statewide programs include the EPIC Program, Disability Employment Initiative, and many others.
The IWIB continues to remain involved and provide leadership as Illinois workNet expands to meet the needs of individuals, employers, and workforce/education partners. The IWIB is currently co-chaired by John Rico, President and CEO of Rico Enterprises, and Sean McCarthy, Acting Director of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
Illinois workNet is sponsored by Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and made possible through state, local, and private sector partnerships.
