Meet Jamie Thibault - El Segundo
El Segundo resident Jamie Thibault visited the South Bay One-Stop Center in 2019 after her layoff off from the apparel industry. Despite her impressive background in product development and production, Jamie suffered the impacts of the U.S apparel industry’s trade and economic transitions.
She worked with a career counselor to develop an individual employment plan and receive specialized services under the Trade and Economic Transition National Dislocated Worker Grant (TET).
Outcome and Benefits:
Jamie completed a certificate in Interior Design through UCLA extension in January 2021 and acquired new skills in computer aided design programs. She made a successful transition back into the workforce and has substantially increased her earning potential by starting her own consulting business where she continues to use her management and supply chain strategy expertise.
