Meet Carina Noyola
Carina Noyola, a 24-year-old from Lawndale, struggled to provide for herself financially with limited work experience but wanted to work in a professional level position.
With a positive outlook, she turned to the South Bay One-Stop Center in Inglewood in August 2021. Following her orientation, she received assistance in resume writing and was offered an On-the-Job Training (OJT) assignment as a communications assistant at Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce.
Outcome and Benefits:
Upon completion of her OJT assignment and armed with a stronger resume, Carina applied for a job with Musiker Discovery Program and was hired as a coordinator with a starting wage of $25 an hour.
