Meet Cameron

Workforce Challenge

Cameron was laid off from Avon Products after being employed there for more than 10 years. He worked as a supervisor for their transportation unit, but lacked certifications in the transportation industry. Again and again Cameron found it impossible to secure employment with a new company because of these requirements.

Workforce Solution

Cameron came to the Foothill WIB One Stop for assistance. Based on labor market information showing the need for Commercial Drivers License (CDL) certification in the transportation industry, he qualified to receive funds for training as a commercial driver through the NEG/Multi-Sector Workforce Partnership Grant. Cameron attended training to obtain the necessary certifications and endorsements required.

Outcomes & Benefits

Cameron received a Class A license with all the endorsements and clearances to drive and to supervise other drivers. He was hired as a supervisor for a trucking company before he even graduated from the program and is now working full time.
