Take a look below to read about the success stories from the Sutter County One Stop.
Dylan came to us as a junior in High School. He participated in our youth job readiness workshop that we hold monthly, “Job Search Techniques Workshop”. He had an extremely positive attitude from the very beginning and was always smiling. Dylan really wanted to understand and grasp the importance of having a great work ethic, especially “taking initiative”. That seemed to stick out the most for him. I placed him for a work experience at Grocery Outlet. The owners were impressed with his hard work and positive attitude. They offered Dylan a job right before he completed his work experience hours. He is now a senior in high school and has been working at Grocery Outlet for almost a year! I have really enjoyed working with Dylan and hope to see him continue to succeed in all that he does. His great attitude and work ethic will definitely take him far!
Joseph Bernal came to our office in March of 2016, seeking training services from our office. After completing a comprehensive assessment, he decided to pursue training in the computer/technology field. Joseph’s most current job was as a general laborer; however, he did have a work history in installation, maintenance and repair technician. Joseph was found eligible for retraining services under our veteran’s grant as part of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and was enrolled in a 12-week Cisco Certified Networking Associate program with a training vendor in Sacramento. Joseph completed the course on time, and passed the industry-recognized required exam with no issues at all. Soon upon completion of his training, Joseph found employment with a local retail store as a repair technician. His past work experience as a repair technician along with his computer training made him the perfect candidate for this job as most of the TV’s he’ll be repairing are smart TV’s. Joseph is very happy in his full-time, benefitted job, starting at $19.60/hour with room for advancement and growth.
