Workforce Success Story Submitted By:

Meet Amanda

Workforce Challenge

Amanda relocated Yuba County from Redding, CA in 2013 to support her partner as he looked for employment. She was also looking for a job, and heard about the Yuba County 1-Stop (a member of the North Central Counties Consortium Local Workforce Investment Area) from a relative, who told her about getting training and job search assistance from the WIA program.

Workforce Solution

The One-Stop helped Amanda develop a better resume and provided her with access to a computer. Her One-Stop counselor helped Amanda overcome the challenges of looking of a job and build up her confidence, which was beginning to wane after being out of work for a long time.

Outcomes & Benefits

Amanda started getting interviews and was hired after a few months. "If it were not for the access to computers and instructions on creating a good résumé, I would not have gained employment," said Amanda. "The WIA is helping me with appropriate clothing now that I am employed. The Yuba County 1-Stop is the place to go if you need help in getting a job. There are many services that can help your job search, particularly the one-on-one counseling and support."
