Meet Kathy Kirk - Redondo Beach
Kathy Kirk, a Redondo Beach resident, was a Sr. Director/ Managing Principal when her business unit was disbanded and her position eliminated. She sought unemployment services through EDD and was referred to our One Stop Center for further assistance.
Kathy was assigned a career counselor who provided career transition support, resources for preparing her resume, job search assistance and no cost training for obtaining a certification as a Project Management Professional and Certified Agile PMO through the University of La Verne. Our center also provided her with opportunities at career networking events, such as Career BridgeBuilders Coaching and networking groups held at American Marty’s Church in Manhattan Beach.
