Workforce Challenge

For three months, Pamela worked as a Graduate Employment Specialist. She remained employed during an 8-month layoff cycle in the industry. However, Pamela was eventually laid off. She received a notice from the Norwalk EDD Office and spoke with a Customer Service Representative about the program and available services. In the same month, Pamela enrolled with the Southeast Workforce Development Board Cerritos Job Center. Through the job center, she sought training and employment assistance.

Workforce Solution

Pamela was assigned a case manager, and she attended job search workshops. She struggled to find employment in LA County and the Inland Empire. Her biggest obstacle to unemployment was motivation.

Outcomes & Benefits

Pamela answered an ad on LinkedIn for a Marketing Manager position with St. Vincent IPA (Physicians Data Trust) in Cerritos. After the interview, she was offered the job! When asked how the Job Center helped her find employment, Pamela said, "Mr. Sharp kept giving me viable job leads and provided me with a customized resume, which led to me finding employment."
