Meet Basil

Workforce Challenge

Basil had been out of work for two years. He had participated in several different job programs, but he had not even been able to secure an interview.

Workforce Solution

At the Southeast LA-Crenshaw WorkSource Center, which is operated by the United Auto Workers Labor Employment and Training Center, Basil participated in the General Orientation Workshop, Employment Resource Center and Job Club. He completed intake requirements for the center and was assigned a business services representative (BSR) who would provide job placement assistance for Basil.

The BSR gave Basil a job lead, the first he had received in several years of searching for employment. The job was in production at Farmer John, and foodservice manufacturer, and Basil was interested. Together, they edited Basil's resume and practiced potential interview questions.

The BSR had contacts in the HR department at the company, which helped Basil get his foot in the door. He gave Basil specific steps to follow to secure an interview with the employer, and within 24 hours, Basil had an appointment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Basil completed his interview and was offered the position. After passing a background check, drug screen and pre-employment physical, Basil returned to work.
