Meet David

Workforce Challenge

After 20 years in the telecommunications industry, David was laid off. He faced the daunting challenge of securing employment in a declining industry. For years, he was unsuccessful in finding work in the industry, and eventually, David decided to change careers.

Workforce Solution

In partnership with the Employment Development Department, the San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board set out to help David with the task of changing careers. After intense individual counseling, staff learned that aviation was David's original passion. He received training for FAA Aviation Certification at Chaffey College. Additionally, the WIB provided assistance with job searches, resume writing and interview skills.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result, David secured a full-time position with Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems as an aircraft electrician. David is grateful for the WIB and attributes his success to the agency. He writes, "With your help, I have been able to achieve a long-time dream of mine, working in the aviation industry. It was a huge risk in changing careers, but the opportunities working with Northrop are endless."
