Meet Gail

Workforce Challenge

After being laid off when her company relocated, Gail visited the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) hoping to find employment. Unfortunately, she was laid off and dealing with a divorce at the same time. As a single, unemployed mother of three, she moved in with her parents.

Workforce Solution

Gail attended an orientation at the WIB’s America’s Job Center of California where she was assigned an advisor. Although she has an MBA/BA, Gail was applying for jobs that required a Contracts Management Certification. After intense school research, job search and workshops, Gail was able to enroll in school with WIB funding.

Outcomes & Benefits

Gail completed her certification and worked with her advisor to find a position. Soon, she secured a job with Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corporation as a Contracts Manager. Gail is thankful for the opportunity to work at a great paying job in a position that she enjoys. She is also extremely grateful for all the support and encouragement she received from her WIB advisor.
