Meet Felissa Preciado
Felissa Preciado, 18, turned to the South Bay One-Stop Center during her senior year for help gaining job readiness skills and preparing for employment after graduation.
She completed the Blueprint for Workplace Success training and a paid work experience position at the Hawthorne Party City that increased her confidence and comfort level with navigating the workplace.
Outcome and Benefits:
Felissa sought guidance with balancing work and school as she transitioned into a permanent position as a Sales Associate while starting at Cal State University Long Beach as a double major in Communications and Journalism.
“I became more cordial and empathetic to others because I was given the opportunity to see how it’s like to work during a pandemic. I seek out opportunities that come along and step out of your comfort zone to network with people and learn.”
