Meet Partho

Workforce Challenge

After working in Cost Estimation and Business Analysis for 2.5 years, Partho was laid off. For more than 2 years after the layoff, he was unemployed. However, he wanted to be working and was on the job hunt. He thought his age was a problem, as well as the fact that he did not have the exact qualifications for many of the job listings.

Workforce Solution

While online, Partho found SELACO WDB, and he made an appointment. He requested assistance to find a job in finance, business analysis at the middle management level or as a residual contributor. He was assigned a case manager, and he attended Steps to Economic and Personal Success (STEPS) and job search workshops. SELACO WDB helped Partho overcome his challenges by providing him with tools and resources to organize his job search. STEPS also helped Partho identify and change certain attitudes that kept him from succeeding. He conducted his job search on various sites, such as Head Hunter, Print Ads, Monster, etc. Soon, he accepted a temporary job as a timekeeper from an on-site job recruitment held by SELACO WDB.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing his skills enhancement training through SELACO WDB, he worked as a Project Coordinator for Phillips 66 Refinery. While working, Partho received a phone call from the Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Farmers and Merchants Bank in Cerritos. Partho received an offer for a Business Analyst position. He happily accepted the position and started in November 2015. Partho advises job seekers to “attend the workshops and integrate STEPS into your life."
