Meet Matthew

Workforce Challenge

Even though Michael secured a Class A certification to drive commercial vehicles, he didn’t have a vehicle of his own. Relying on public transportation to attend interviews made searching for work difficult, and he was unable to pursue opportunities outside of Hesperia. After hearing about his predicament, the Skyway Trucking School referred Michael to America's Job Center of California for assistance.

Workforce Solution

At the center, Michael received numerous no-cost services, including resume support, job referrals and funding for transportation.

Outcomes & Benefits

With the center's help, Michael was offered an on-the-job training position as a Commercial Driver with Del's Distribution. He is excited to use his Class A certification to build a career. He says, "I now have a career of which I can be proud. I able to work hard, save money to buy a car and find permanent housing."
