Workforce Challenge

Nataly was an 18 year old student from Norwalk who had just enrolled at Cerritos College. In September 2013, she also enrolled in the SELACO WIB Community Youth Corps (CYC). She did not have any work experience and was in need of a job to help pay college expenses.

Workforce Solution

Through the CYC, Nataly was provided a work experience opportunity at PetCo in Cerritos. She completed 65 hours, and afterward, she applied for a position, but was not hired. Nataly was still much in need of employment. She completed all her CYC required classes and worked individually with the job developer to help her gain confidence and stay encouraged. She was consistent with her job search and always followed up.

Outcomes & Benefits

In October 2013, Nataly attended an interview at Disneyland and a few weeks later was called for a job. She is now working part time with Disney's concessions team.
