Meet Yolanda

Workforce Challenge

As a Manager Administrator, Yolanda was laid off. She remained unemployed for eight months. The biggest challenges Yolanda faced in seeking employment were being overqualified and being one of too many applicants applying for the same job.

Workforce Solution

After receiving a referral from the Employment Development Department (EDD), Yolanda visited the SELACO Workforce Investment Board (WIB). She needed help finding a job as an Executive Assistant. Yolanda received encouragement and job leads daily. She also received financial assistance with gas and professional clothing. Yolanda searched for jobs online, networked with family and friends and used the Cerritos Career Center.

Outcomes & Benefits

Yolanda applied for a full-time Executive Assistant position at Su Casa, and she was offered the job! She advises new and returning WIB customers to “Be patient, [and] be considerate to the SELACO WIB staff! They are here to help you!"
