Meet Patrick

Workforce Challenge

Patrick remained unemployed despite great effort to find a job. To him, it seemed like very few employers were looking for someone with his skill set. When he received a letter about on-the-job training available through the Workforce Investment Board, he contacted the America's Job Centers of California right away.

Workforce Solution

Patrick's Caseworker Marti advised him to attend several of the center's workshops that taught resume writing and job searching skills. After Patrick polished his resume, Marti provided lists of job openings and referred him to prospective employers.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the Workforce Investment Board's help, Patrick was matched with two companies. Both interviewed him and offered him jobs. He is now employed as a marketing professional in Upland, CA. Patrick is most grateful for the feeling that he "had a true advocate in what can sometimes be a frustrating and extremely competitive job market."
