Workforce Challenge

Lavell came to the South Bay One Stop Business & Career Center in Inglewood after his layoff. He was employed as a Park Maintenance Technician for 5 years. He was unsure of what to do next but after filing for unemployment benefits he was informed of the services provided at the Inglewood One-Stop. Lavell looked for work on his own in hopes of becoming employed within a few weeks. After a year had passed and he was still unemployed, he remembered what EDD said about the services provided at the Inglewood One-Stop and decided to attend an orientation.

Workforce Solution

Lavell decided to take advantage of the services and programs offered by the One-Stop. He enjoyed the Job Readiness Workshops because they refreshed his memory on job seeking and job-keeping skills and helped him become focused on earning a paycheck. Lavell was offered job training in the medical field.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lavell completed his course to be a Nursing Assistant and was hired by Lighthouse Healthcare Center. He completed his internship hours there and is now ready for full time work.
