Meet Janyra

Workforce Challenge

Without access to a car or public transportation, Janyra was restricted to searching for jobs on the Internet without assistance, which was proving to be unsuccessful. Her teenage daughter was enrolled in high school in Big Bear, making Janyra hesitant to move to another area.

Workforce Solution

Janyra decided to call the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s America’s Job Center of California for assistance. Staff immediately trained Janyra to use the Board’s online database – providing access to several hundred more jobs. Janyra was able to use the service at home and soon had new leads and multiple job referrals.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the Board’s help, Janyra was hired as a food server at Old Country Inn, a restaurant close to her residence. Today she is earning an hourly wage plus tips and is supporting her family in Big Bear.
