Meet Michael

Workforce Challenge

Michael was unemployed and struggled to find a job. He says, "I felt like there wasn’t much out there. I looked for general labor work that I felt anyone could do because I always felt like I was competing against more qualified people. I was discouraged, but I really wanted to do something productive with my life." Then, his mother suggested that he contact the WIB-funded @LIKE program to see if they could help.

Workforce Solution

Michael was accepted into the program and within weeks, he became more confident. He began speaking in group sessions and learning how to conduct himself in an interview. @LIKE also provided support so Michael could enroll in the manufacturing training course at Chaffey College.

Outcomes & Benefits

Through the program, Michael received 14 certifications. He is now confidently applying for manufacturing jobs. He says, "The program has given me more confidence in looking for a job. I know now what to say in an interview and what to expect when I am looking for work. The manufacturing training helped me to be more aware of the types of jobs available and how education is important for me to have more opportunity. I thank the program for providing me with this opportunity."
