Congrats to Mayra Ramos who obtained employment through our WorkSource Center!

WorkSource_Mayra

Pictured left to right: Jocelyn Rodriguez (Mayra’s Career Coach), Jessica Fuentes (Career Coach managing TLH program), Mayra Ramos (WSC Participant).

Mayra Ramos encountered the Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource Center in August of 2017 while seeking immediate employment services. Mayra migrated from Honduras in search of stability, safety, and better employment opportunities. However, seeking employment in the United States with English as a Second Language made the outcome all the more difficult.  She’d enrolled in English as a Second Language and Intermediate computer courses to enhance her skills and compete with other job seekers. Her previous work experience consisted of care-giving and housekeeping, but she was searching for a position that provided professional growth.

Upon enrolling at the Vernon-Central/LATTC WorkSource, Mayra was assisted with resume development and was referred for the Targeted Local Hire Program (TLH) with the City of Los Angeles. Shortly after attending the TLH orientation, Mayra was selected from the pool of candidates. She immediately submitted her resume for consideration for a position with the Public Library department. Mayra was assisted in preparing for the interview and was provided interview clothing by Dress for Success. The hiring process with the city of Los Angeles has an extensive waiting period however, Mayra refused to settle for another employment option and kept hope alive for this opportunity.

On December of 2017, Mayra received the best Christmas present: a New Hire Offer letter with the City of Los Angeles as an Administrative Assistant with the Los Angeles Public Library. Mayra began the New Year in process for the opportunity she’d been seeking. Her new employer contacted her early January 2018 with her assigned work site and work schedule. Mayra’s start date was scheduled for January 22, 2018.

Through the process, she was able to maintain communication with her Career Coach and provide with feedback. Once hired, Mayra provided words of encouragement for current job seekers:

“Siempre hay ayuda; Nosotros tenemos que buscarla!”

Translates to: “There is always help; it’s up to us to seek it!”

If you’re currently in need of assistance, please contact our Career Coach Jocelyn Rodriguez at (213) 747-6357 ext 132.
