Meet Rodney Hironymous

Workforce Challenge:

Rodney Hironymous contacted the South Bay One-Stop in Gardena after his layoff in 2020. Despite his 10-year extensive background in the automotive industry and working for industry giants such as Toyota and Honda, the effects of the pandemic left Rodney with limited options.


Workforce Solution:

Working with his career counselor, Rodney decided to pursue a Business Fundamentals Course through I-TRAIN partner UCLA Extension. While on track to completing his program, Rodney secured employment with Los Angeles Unified School District as a Contract Administrative Analyst.

Outcome and Benefits:

Rodney reintegrated into the workforce in an entirely new and pandemic-proof industry and is earning a higher wage than through his previous employment.

“This is permanent employment with all the state benefits. My training proved invaluable in securing the job. I used a final paper I wrote for my class to demonstrate my skills. I received the offer the next day. I truly owe this entirely to the SBWIB.”
