Workforce Challenge

Tawana Johnson is a single mother who recently moved to California from Nevada. Tawana was conducting her job search through the internet but she was having difficulty finding work. On a whim, she walked into a Sacramento Works Career Center. After reviewing the information and resources available at the center, Tawana picked up a flyer about the On-the-Job Training (OJT) program and attended the orientation.

Workforce Solution

Tawana started working with a Career Center Coach, Tammy, and was placed in the On-the-Job Training program. After about a month, and no placement with an employer, she was becoming discourage, but Tammy continued to work with her, providing encouragement and support. Tawana stated, "She had faith in me and never gave up on me!" Tawana kept working with her coach and followed her suggestions.

Outcomes & Benefits

Shortly thereafter, Tawana landed a position with Ez-CLONE Enterprises. She started as a Receptionist and now is managing the Social Network Team. Tawana says, "I don't know what I would've done without the Sacramento Works OJT program and my Coach, Tammy. I have landed my dream job".
