Meet Shalom

Workforce Challenge

After being laid off from an auto manufacturer in 2008, Shalom was living at the poverty level and was discouraged and stressed. When a family member recommended the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board, Shalom made a visit to the Employment Resource Center.

Workforce Solution

While at the Employment Resource Center, Shalom met with an advisor to discuss training options that would lead to a career and the ability to live independently. He decided to focus on mechanics and entered training for office machine repair.

Outcomes & Benefits

Just before completing the training in Office Machine Repair, Shalom received an offer from Cal-Tech Services for a full-time position.

“I now have a positive future and am very grateful for the assistance I received from the Workforce Investment Board,” Shalom shares.
