Meet Sylvia

Workforce Challenge

After 23 years of employment at the same medical company, Sylvia was laid off. Despite having a PhD, she struggled to find work. Married to a disabled veteran who cannot work, Sylvia was anxious about providing for her family.

Workforce Solution

Sylvia received collaborative job search assistance from the Workforce Development Board and the Employment Development Department.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result, Sylvia was offered a position as a Wellness Director at Ukiah Valley Medical Center. She is making a wage that enables her to support her family. She says, “I want to thank the Workforce Development Board staff at the America’s Job Center of California for their time, support and professional guidance over the past few months. It gave me fortitude and hope to stay with the grueling job hunting process.”
