Workforce Challenge

Patricia came to SELACO WIB after being unemployed for 11 weeks. She had been terminated from her previous job for arriving late to work. She had experience as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). When the Career Development Specialist met with Patricia, she told her that there were many CNA positions available. However, Patricia needed help with her résumé and interviewing skills. She also needed to work on her time management skills, as she was often late.

Workforce Solution

Patricia attended Steps to Economic and Personal Success (STEPS) and the class motivated her immensely. This 3-day seminar helped address her personal challenges and set goals in both her personal and professional life. Patricia also attended the other job search workshops at SELACO WIB, which provided her with the tools and knowledge that she needed to become job ready.

Outcomes & Benefits

Patricia eventually found a great job working as a CNA. She used all her resources, the Internet, newspapers and the PennySaver to find job listings. She finally got her job by applying in person, and she is now working in Whittier. Patricia is so happy and it shows in her face and smile. Everyday, Patricia eagerly arrives to work 15 to 20 minutes early!
