Meet Patrick

Workforce Challenge

As a project designer, Patrick was was laid off, and he remained unemployed for one month. Patrick's biggest challenge was trying to find employment without the most current training in his field. He struggled with the cost of training and the availability of programs.

Workforce Solution

Patrick visited the SELACO Workforce Investment Board (WIB) seeking employment assistance, including improving his marketability in the job market and learning about courses offered. He was also searching for jobs on Caljobs, Indeed, LinkedIn and in local friend/colleague networks.

Outcomes & Benefits

Although the SELACO WIB started to assist Patrick with relevant course options, he secured employment before he could pursue continued education. He is now employed as a Facilities Designer at Walker Zanger. Patrick says, “I most definitely would refer all job seekers to go to SELACO WIB! Take as many courses or workshops that will help you in the short and long run.”
