Prepare for the career you want.
Employers in every industry sector are looking for skilled workers to help them compete in the global economy. If you need training to secure a stable job with good wages, apply for a scholarship at your local job center. Scholarships can be used for either classroom training or on-the-job training – either way; you will be more prepared for the career you want.
Not sure if training is right for you? That’s ok. Golden Sierra staff are specially trained to help you identify your current skills, evaluate the labor market, and explore your training options. Eligible individuals can receive one-on-one career planning and case management services at no cost.
This program has provided the marketing tool for me to discuss my opportunities with potential employers. It built trust and confidence in my ability and now I have advanced from the hiring position of Bookkeeper to Operations Manager of two companies. I also appreciate the continuing support Golden Sierra has given me since I was hired 18 months ago.
After being downsized I found it extremely difficult to get interviews for a new job. Golden Sierra provided me with programs that helped me choose a [career] direction. Golden Sierra provided the funding necessary to follow this dream to its conclusion.
I have overcome many life issues & barriers that I perceived were stopping me from completing my goals. The One-stop provides a positive environment for individuals seeking to better their chances at having a career.
You may not always have the most direct route to your destination, but as long as you look for opportunities to excel and challenge yourself to overcome the obstacles that may arise, you can accomplish your goals. I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to El Dorado County, Golden Sierra, and everyone who has assisted me along my journey. Thank you!
I found out what I liked to do and what kind of work I should do. Without the Golden Sierra office in Auburn offering all the How-to-Sessions and the great staff there, I feel that I would still be looking for work. Thank you for everything and I wish the best of luck to the Golden Sierra office in Auburn.
Thank you so much for approving my application for training. I am so blessed to receive this funding and be able to pursue my goal of becoming a massage therapist. It’s always been a huge dream of mine.
The results of working with the staff at the Auburn Connections Center is that I am much more focused and confident. I have a network, a plan, and the resources I need to take this personal campaign to a successful conclusion. This a great place to focus, get advice and help.
Thanks to Auburn Connections I obtained a full-time, permanent position (with benefits) in less than seven months of my arrival in California.
It is great there are so many resources and assistance for someone my age looking for a job. This center and staff are wonderful. The mock interview the staff gave me was very helpful and reminded me of many things I had forgotten.
Melody and Steve were very helpful and pleasant to work with. I was able to get paid while interning at a commercial real estate firm in Roseville, allowing me to work full-time and still pay my bills. This was a great program that really worked.
