Meet Ruben Calvillo - Gardena
Ruben Calvillo worked for a car rental company, where he was a manager in training. He subsequently lost his job when he did not pass his training course. Mr. Calvillo had difficulty finding work and needed to enhance his skills. Realizing that he needed to find a job that would enable him to take care of his family, which included both of his parents and younger siblings, he realized that he needed to go back to the Employment Development Department. He was then referred to the Gardena One-Stop where he received information on vocational training.
Once Ruben found out he was eligible to receive funding under the WIA Adult Program, he enrolled in the American Career College in Los Angeles. Now he was on track to pursue the career he truly desired as a Pharmacy Technician.
Outcome and Benefits:
Upon completion of his training and externship as a Pharmacy Technician, Ruben was offered a position as the Lead Pharmacy Technician with Biofusion Pharmacy in Torrance. He is now earning more than $43,000 annually and is extremely satisfied with his new career path.
