Meet Jose

Workforce Challenge

After being employed for six years as a Paper Cutter Operator, Jose was laid off. Despite having over more than 20 years of experience in printing, including bindery and operating a paper cutter, he was having a difficult time finding employment.

Workforce Solution

Jose was referred to the Workforce Investment Board by the State of California’s Employment Development Department. He was assigned an advisor through the Workforce Investment Board for job counseling, resume critique and job search assistance. Jose also utilized the resource room and the County of San Bernardino’s Workforce Investment Network website for his job search.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jose was offered employment with The Press Enterprise as a Pallet Stacker. He accepted the part-time position, but continued his job search for a better paying position. Eventually, Jose was offered a position with B & D Litho as a Paper Cutter Operator and is now earning a decent wage.
