Meet Mr. Julao

Workforce Challenge

Mr. Julao worked for 19 years as a System Administrator for an aerospace manufacturer. Due to budget cuts, he was laid off in May 2013. Prior to the layoff, he had purchased a business, but he lost his entire investment due to a default of sale from the previous owner. Mr. Julao was now laid off and in debt. His brother was receiving services through Goodwill’s Veteran’s Employment Program when he noticed a LA Back to Work Flyer which listed Mr. Julao's former employer as an eligible employer for free training and job placement assistance.

Workforce Solution

Mr. Julao came into the WorkSource Center and enrolled in the Getting L.A. Back to Work Program in June 2013. His case manager helped created an individual employment plan him, and together they decided that he should obtain some training to help him become more marketable as a job candidate. Mr. Julao enrolled at ABCO School of Technology for the CISSP/NETWORK+/CCNA Certification, a network security certification that is in demand.

Outcomes & Benefits

During his training course, Mr. Julao interviewed with Kinecta Federal Credit Union for a Field Services Engineer. He was offered the position and began work in September 2013. Mr. Julao is still in the process of finishing up his training while he is employed full time, earning over $26 per hour. Mr. Julao is truly a success story as he has demonstrated perseverance and drive even though for a minute he lost everything he had worked for. Metro North WorkSource Center is proud to be a part of Mr. Julao’s success.
