Meet Selenia Hernandez - Gardena
Selenia Hernandez, 24, and single parent of two children, re-settled from Las Vegas, Nevada, back to the South Bay so she could get her mother’s assistance while looking for full-time employment. Having only a high school diploma she knew she needed to acquire some training and job search skills.
Selenia enrolled in the Job Club Program at her local GAIN center and soon found out about the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program. She was referred to the Gardena One Stop Center for an interview and was selected to enter into an eight month paid position as an office assistant.
Outcome and Benefits:
Throughout Selena’s 8 month training period, she had impressed the center’s management enough that she was hired at the Gardena One Stop full time as an Administrative Assistant.
“The One Stop Center staff members were totally supportive of me and gave me the opportunity to succeed. All the hard work I have done at the center and the patience I had paid off.”
