Meet Sean Paine - Torrance

Workforce Challenge:

Sean Paine moved back to the South Bay Area, where he is originally from, after living in Idaho with his mother for almost a year. Sean was in dire need of a new career to support his wife and their one-year-old twins. Unfortunately, after several unsuccessful months of job searching, he decided that he would go to the Beach Cities One-Stop Business and Career Center, for assistance. Upon arrival, he attended informational sessions, took aptitude and career assessment tests, to evaluate his skill and knowledge levels.

He was interested in starting a career in Information Technology. Given Sean’s previous experience, as an Apple Technical Advisor, Sean and the One-Stop staff, decided that the best possible option would be to enroll in the MCSA SQL Database training. This training was offered by SBWIB through New Horizons Computer Learning Center in Culver City and would enable him to increase his technical skills and knowledge.

Outcome and Benefits:

Upon completion of the training, Sean was hired by Chevron in July 2015, as an Instrument and Electrical Mechanic, making more than $60,000 per year. This change has lifted the financial burden and enabled him to support himself and his young family.
