Workforce Challenge

Cierra, 30, is a mother of a two-year-old, who had been working for a marketing company that worked in the energy industry. When the company lost its contract with a major customer, Cierra found herself out of a job. With a young child at home, Cierra knew she had no time to waste in finding another job to sustain her and her young child.

Workforce Solution

Cierra remembered that a previous stint of assistance from the South Bay One-Stop - Inglewood had landed her employment, so she decided to go back to see if she might have the same result. At the Inglewood One-Stop she met with a job developer who arranged an interview for her the very next day.

Outcomes & Benefits

Cierra is now an Administrative Assistant for the South Bay Environmental Services Center and enjoys the daily professional interactions, as well as the stability and security of a full-time job.

“Now I’m receiving so much knowledge on environmental programs and ways to preserve the environment. I’m also working with Council members and other elected officials such as Mayors and Senators. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me in this new career path,” she said.
