Meet Sean

Workforce Challenge

After a year of living in Idaho with his family, including toddler twins, Sean moved back to the South Bay area. He searched for employment for several months without success. In dire need of help, Sean visited the Beach Cities One-Stop Business and Career Center for assistance.

Workforce Solution

At the one-stop, Sean attended information sessions and took aptitude and career assessment tests to evaluate his skills and knowledge. He learned that he was eligible to receive training under the Workforce Investment Act Adult Program, and he was interested in starting a career in Information Technology. Given Sean’s previous experience as an Apple Technical Advisor, staff recommended that he enroll in the MCSA SQL Database training. Eager to increase his technical skills and knowledge, Sean enrolled.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon program completion, Sean was hired by Chevron as an Instrument and Electrical Mechanic. His new job has enabled him to support his young family.
