Meet Sandy

Workforce Challenge

At 55, Sandy was looking for work. She frequently sent out her resume, but received no response. Finally, she decided to take advantage of services she had heard about at the Employment Resource Center.

Workforce Solution

At the Employment Resource Center, Sandy was trained how to research and apply for positions so that her time spent was more productive and effective. In addition, Sandy’s advisor, Marti Baca, helped Sandy update her resume to better reflect her skills and experience and make her more marketable.

Outcomes & Benefits

After honing her job search and resume with help from the Workforce Investment Board, Sandy landed a job as an administrative assistant at the YMCA.

“I never thought I could get a job at 55 that would be satisfying. I feel very lucky and I am glad I called the [Resource Center],” states Sandy. “With the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s help I quickly found an enjoyable job and I feel better about planning for retirement.”
