Workforce Challenge

David was a chiropractor who relocated from Southern California to Auburn to assist with the care of his elderly mother. Circumstances were not favorable to starting up another practice so David obtained a Class B license and worked as a bus driver at an assisted living facility until he was laid off. “As with many individuals who have lost their jobs, I was feeling overwhelmed! My neighbor was kind enough to refer me to Auburn Connections Center.”

Workforce Solution

David registered with Auburn Connections in June 2012. “The service I found the most helpful to overcoming the challenges of looking for a new job was the resume help. I am an older job seeker and the advice I received was invaluable." With a targeted resume, David got more interview requests, and although it took a while, he identified opportunities for work and began to feel more hopeful.

Outcomes & Benefits

In August 2012, David was hired by Pride Industries as a bus driver for its Forest Hill and surrounding area route. "Auburn Connections Center helped build my confidence and peace of mind. I'd recommend it to others in my position, without question,” said David.
