Workforce Development Board - San Bernardino County

Meet Alfredo

Workforce Challenge

After 23 years of continuous employment, Alfredo was part of a massive layoff. Over the years, he worked at the same location for five different companies, and he felt out of touch with the current job market. He was anxious about his upcoming job search, not knowing how to translate his skills and what jobs to search for. Through his employer, Alfredo attended a Workforce Investment Board informational meeting to learn about available employment services.

Workforce Solution

In order to prepare for his next career move, Alfredo participated in career counseling, took advantage of the job referrals board and met with the business services team to identify job openings and opportunities for career networking.

Outcomes & Benefits

Through the services provided, Alfredo found temporary work with the possibility of becoming a full-time employee. Alfredo insists that the assistance provided from the Workforce Investment Board "impacted me and my future in a tremendous way… these programs were the connection to many local jobs available which would have been hard to come across otherwise".
