Meet John

Workforce Challenge

John came into the Golden Sierra career center (GSJTA) looking for career counseling. He hoped to acquire some on-the-job training and have an opportunity to gain work experience. At first, John was interested in becoming a Pharmacy Technician, so the Center staff worked with him, and he interviewed for a Pharmacy Technician position. Unfortunately he did not receive a job offer. John also explored a few caregiver/medical technician job opportunities but did not go past the interview stage.

Workforce Solution

John decided he wanted to explore different career opportunities outside of health care and pharmacy. The GSJTA staff provided job search assistance, resume development assistance and mock interview sessions to help him improve his interview skills. John also attended "How-to" workshops.

GSJTA offered John the chance to interview for a work experience placement as a document prep/scanner with a local Roseville company. He was excited about the opportunity.

Outcomes & Benefits

GSJTA set up the interview for John, and he used his new interviewing skills during the session. John was offered the work experience opportunity!

After the work experience opportunity completed, John participated in the on-the-training (OJT) program to gain further experience in the industry. He completed the training in February 2014 and is now a regular employee of Hines EDM.
