Meet Tim

Workforce Challenge

Tim enjoyed his job as a Dean of Education at a private post-secondary school. He was engaged and empowered to motivate his students. However, when the enrollment numbers declined, he was laid off. He was decimated and could not understand how he could be let go with his talents and passion. However, he looked to the future and decided to find new opportunities.

Workforce Solution

Tim discovered the Rancho Cucamonga Employment Resource Center, and although at first skeptical, he went to the orientation session, the veterans workshop, and posted his resume on the job search site. Through the WIA, he discovered other opportunities than those he previously considered. They assisted him in securing training in new skills that would help him transition to corporate and school auditing, a slightly different career that complimented his current education and experience.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the help of the WIB, he is now enrolled in the Microsoft Office Professional Certification Training and on his way to a new career.

“I believe in the personal touch of the counselors, and the EDD staff makes a huge difference in someone returning to the workforce,” states Tim. “Without their dedication I would not be able to move forward and return to the workforce.”
