Meet Shane

Workforce Challenge

Shane Evans was a recently separated veteran from the Marine Corps when came into the Westminster One Stop Center. He was ready to find a new job as a civilian, but needed help with the transition. He was referred to our center via the Welcome Home Veteran program.

Workforce Solution

At the Center, Shane met with a veterans' representative and was enrolled to receive job search and placement assistance from the WIA program. (These items are known as Core Services, along with basic assessments, eligibility evaluations, labor market information, and career training information.)

Shane received assistance with updating his resume and learning interviewing skills, which he practiced his skills through a mock interview. Through the business services team, Shane was part of Positive Recruitment, which matches job postings from participating employers with jobseeker skills and abilities. He diligently followed up on all job leads provided to him from his Career Coach.

Outcomes & Benefits

Ultimately, Shane identified two opportunities from job leads and positive recruitment conducted by the One Stop team. He interviewed and was offered these positions, and decided to take the one that was closer to his home. To prepare to begin work, Shane needed assistance with business casual clothing, and WIA Supportive Services was used to assist Shane with money to purchase appropriate attire. Shane began his position at C&D Zodiac Inc. as an IT Technician for private jets in November, 2010. Congratulations, Shane!
