After years of being employed by a major healthcare group, Sam’s IT department was outsourced, leaving Sam unemployed. Sam received Unemployment Insurance for several months until the benefits ran out. This led Sam to apply for temporary aid through the San Bernardino County Transitional Assistance Department, where he learned about the Workforce Investment Board.

Sam came to the Workforce Investment Board’s High Desert America’s Job Center of California and took classes on resume writing, interviewing techniques and job search. Sam is now a California State Employee working as a Disabled Veterans Outreach Program Specialist.

“In my opinion, there is no way that I could have accomplished this without the help of the High Desert America’s Job Center of California,” said Sam.
