Eric is a veteran with a permanent disability who was seeking a job to help supplement his State Disability Insurance. He was referred to the Workforce Investment Board by the Employment Development Department.

Eric visited the High Desert America’s Job Center of California and was referred to vocational rehabilitation. He received one-on-one resume assistance, help with job applications, and attended interview workshops. This gave Eric the skills and confidence he needed to find a full-time job as a greeter at Walmart.

Eric said, “The Workforce Investment Board staff spent many hours with me updating my resume and assisting me with the computer application process to apply for jobs at Walmart, Target, Costco and Dollar Tree. They also helped me find a job I can do despite my disabilities. They gave me hope. I have been blessed that I have had the opportunity to work with such wonderful people.”
