Meet Matthew

Workforce Challenge

Even though Matthew had secured his Class A certification to drive commercial vehicles, he didn’t have a vehicle of his own which made searching for work difficult. Michael was relying on public transportation to attend interviews and was not able to pursue opportunities outside of Hesperia.

Workforce Solution

After hearing about his predicament, the Skyway Trucking School referred Matthew to the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s America’s Job Center of California for assistance. At the Center, Matthew received numerous no-cost services such as support with writing his resume, job referrals and funding for transportation.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the Center’s help, Matthew was offered an on-the-job training position as a Commercial Driver with Del’s Distribution. Michael is excited to use his Class A certification to build a career. He said, “I now have a career of which I can be proud. I able to work hard, save money to buy a car and find permanent housing.”
