Meet Peter

Workforce Challenge

Peter is a senior veteran with 20 years of experience as a retired probation officer. He needed to supplement his retirement income, but had difficulty finding a job. He soon realized that he needed assistance in researching today’s job market.

Workforce Solution

Peter was referred to the San Bernardino County WIB for training and Veteran’s Assistance. The WIB provided Peter with personalized case management and career advice. He received job referrals, one-on-one assistance with his resume, attended job search workshops, and was provided with assistance to obtain the background check required for many of the positions of interest.

Outcomes & Benefits

Peter is now successfully employed full-time as a campus monitor at a high school. He is especially thankful to the WIB for assistance with computer skills training and for a referral to the Veteran’s Networking Club. Peter said that the WIB helped him “…find a realistic career goal that suited my age and physical ability. I am so appreciative of the service I received. I am now able to support my household.”
