Meet Jesse

Workforce Challenge

After his tour of duty was complete, Jesse returned home to transition into the civilian world. Despite military experience, he struggled to translate his skills to employers.

Workforce Solution

Jesse's future prospects took an upward turn when the Workforce Development Board funded training for a Commercial Driver's License, including tuition and travel assistance.

Outcomes & Benefits

This funding enabled Jesse to obtain a Class B Driver's License and secure full-time employment. Today, he is a truck driver for Expeditor's Fire Support. He works on fire lines throughout California, extinguishing brush fires. He says, "The Workforce Development Board services were so helpful. Having a Class B Commercial License has opened up many opportunities. Since I started working, I've already received three other job offers that I had to turn down."
