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.
Within 3 weeks of registering with the Connections Center, found a job. It is a good place to start job hunting. Thank you guys for all your help!
I was a single mother on welfare with few job skills and in need of resources. The support that I received was tremendous and helped me push myself to succeed in ways that I otherwise wouldn’t have.
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.
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!
Despite my health issues (which I openly disclosed to the employer) I worked very hard and was offered regular work after my ‘internship’ ended!
Through the professional and knowledgeable staff, like Susan and her team, I am now on pace to get a professional job in Human Resources. They treat their clients with utmost respect!
Each and every one of you helped me get this job–and I can’t thank you enough. I had to come back today and tell you what a difference you all made in my life!
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.
I highly recommend the One-Stop to build resumes and to learn how to a get job. I went in oblivious to many things and came out with marketable skills I didn’t know I had! The employees there were amazing, hardworking people who really care and they helped me the most!
I believe the most useful part of the program was the guidance, support and motivation I received from my case worker and the time spent talking with me and listening to my goals.
