Staff at the West Valley America’s Job Center of California assisted Willie with resume writing, job search tools and techniques, interviewing and how to handle the conviction question. Willie also utilized the computers in the resource room to complete resumes and applications.

When asked about the Workforce Investment Board’s support, Willie said, “I received a lot of help with my resume, which landed me a job.
