Workforce Challenge

Over the last two years, Dennis and his wife both lost their jobs due to outsourcing. They found themselves in a financial crisis they had never before faced. “All of a sudden our livelihood was taken away and our dreams and hopes were shattered.” Fortunately, after several months, his wife secured employment. As for Dennis, it was much more difficult to find employment that matched his skillset.

Workforce Solution

Dennis sought assistance from the Golden Sierra WIB. “Golden Sierra helped me find hope by giving me the opportunity to participate in their training program.” Dennis was enrolled in occupational skills training to obtain key certificates that would help him to be more employable in the current competitive market.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon completion of his training, Dennis secured full-time employment with “one of the better employers in California, who can provide better job security and potential for future advancement. Thanks to Golden Sierra for making it possible for us to have hopes and dreams again! I certainly hope that Golden Sierra continues to be there for a long time so that they can continue helping others who have lost their jobs due to the economy."
