Meet Jaime

Workforce Challenge

Jaime was a single parent and was not sure what to do for a career. She came into the Imperial Courts WorkSource Portal everyday for 3 months, bringing her child with her, and searched for open jobs on her own. The staff provided her with some job leads and encouraged her to attend a WIA orientation.

Workforce Solution

Jaime finally signed up for a WIA orientation and was assigned to a case manager. Center staff interviewed Jaime and completed an educational plan for her. Jaime was interested in helping people and had some experience in customer service. She decided to enroll in Security Guard training. The Center helped her make child care arrangements for her daughter and Jaime began a six-week-long course at the Guard Training Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jaime had been determined to find a job for a long time. When the WorkSource Center received a call from the Guard Training Center that Jaime had been hired full time, they were very happy for her. Jaime is now working for HSS (Hospital Shared Services) and is stationed at the California Hospital with a starting wage of over $12 per hour.
