Meet Danny

Workforce Challenge

When his company downsized, Danny was laid off. He had 10 years of experience in building maintenance, two years at his previous company, and he was a veteran with three years in the service. Despite his background, he struggled to find a job.

Workforce Solution

Danny was referred to the Workforce Investment Board by a veteran representative from the State of California’s Employment Development Department. The Workforce Investment Board assisted him with supportive services and training. Danny attended the Center for Employment Training and obtained a certificate in heating ventilation, air conditioning and green energy. In addition, Danny also received job search assistance by attending Workforce Investment Board workshops and meeting with a job placement specialist.

Outcomes & Benefits

Danny successfully completed all proposed activities on his individual employment plan and entered employment as a heating and ventilation installer.
