Amber Cutshaw, Business Services Representative

Amber has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Minor in Multi-Media & Graphic Design from Pittsburg State University. Graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Minor in Multi-Media & Graphic Design does not come with a defined career path with a setlist of job titles to pursue. Amber realized right away that her passion was helping others navigate the highs and lows of building a career and finding success. She also has a passion for building relationships within the community and a strong desire to help fuel economic development. The realization of these passions led Amber to build a career in Workforce Development.

Amber relocated from Kansas and started her career as a Career Services Representative for a local trade school in 2013. During this time she was recognized for being the single most cross-trained employee within the company at that time, maintained a campus 90%placement rate, and started 2 major yearly events that still occur to this day related to scholarship fundraising and career development.

Next Amber moved into a business development role within the nonprofit sector that eventually led her to Green Country Workforce. Amber has a strong track record building meaningful relationships with local companies and community partners so she can identify their needs and match them with skilled individuals to bridge the skills gap our community is facing today. Amber is pleased to be a part of the Business Services team and looks forward to helping our community by building a strong and capable workforce.
