Workforce Challenge

Laura was a development associate with over five years of fundraising experience. She originally went to SELACO WIB to get a typing test certificate for a job interview, but once there, she saw that the services provided were much more than expected.

Workforce Solution

After receiving career counseling with a thorough assessment, Laura attended STEPS, a three-day seminar that helped pinpoint her focus regarding her job search. She then attended a résumé workshop that helped bring her résumé up-to-date. She also signed up for a Graphic Design class at the ABC Adult School in Long Beach. Despite not having been in school for over a decade, She dove right in and learned a new skill. It was a tough 11 months with only her unemployment insurance check as income. Thankfully, she had SELACO WIB to assist her with coaching and encouragement.

Outcomes & Benefits

“After demonstrating my skills, proving my abilities and learning a new, marketable skill, I secured employment with another local charity and am now earning a good living," shared Laura. "I am proof that with the assistance of WIB, adults of all ages and backgrounds have access to available resources to help in their job search.”
