Workforce Challenge

Brenda was laid off from her last two jobs in a row, and knew she needed to make some very big changes to her employment strategy. Due to a conflict with her last employer, Brenda also needed some assistance and guidance in submitting her unemployment claim to the Employment Development Department (EDD).

Workforce Solution

Having relocated to Auburn and hearing about Auburn Connections from St. Vincent’s in Roseville, Brenda registered to use our services. She attended workshops, accessed computers for job searches and assessments, and inquired about available training programs. Based on the results of her assessments and suggestions from staff that she may want to make a career change, Brenda began the steps to qualify for retraining through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).

Outcomes & Benefits

Brenda’s focus to retraining paid off—twice! She qualified for WIA training funds and EDD’s California Training Benefits program too.

Brenda says, “Come in, listen, learn and use the resources. Keep coming back till you find success! Following the suggestions of the caring people at Auburn Connections resulted in my being approved for 500 hours of Certified Massage Therapy training. Thank you Auburn Connections!”
