There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

  Gary Larion
Gary registered with a One-Stop in Michigan, Ottawa County Michigan Works after he became dissatisfied with the jobs he was finding on his own. He wanted more family time. His previous jobs involved working nights and weekends.

Gary attended our Resume Writing, Interviewing, and Job Search and Networking Workshops. He improved his resume. Michelle Pellegrini, the Employer Service Specialist, saw the resume and knew that Gary would be a good fit for a position that involved both physical labor and customer service.

On November 16, 2005, the owner of Randy's Carpet Care was searching for resumes on the Michigan Talent Bank when Michelle gave him Gary 's resume. Randy agreed to interview Gary . Gary was on the premises job searching, but left before Michelle could locate him so Michelle ran after him through the parking lot to get him to the interview. Randy was hired following their “on-the-spot” interview. Now Gary only occasionally works nights and has more time for his family.
