Meet Tanesha Hudson
Compton resident Tanesha Hudson and a single parent of two young children, was laid off from her job of 18 years with Sony in 2016 and struggled to find new employment.
While working with GAIN, Tanesha found out about the free services offered through the South Bay Workforce Investment Board’s Carson One-Stop Business & Career Center. She attended an orientation session. Her job developer felt she was a good candidate for a position in the City Clerk’s Office with the City of Carson and prepared her for an interview. He also suggested she become familiar with a new software that municipal governments are now utilizing for records management. Tanesha was selected for the temporary part-time position under the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program. As she neared the end of the TSE assignment, Tanesha was hired by the City of Carson for a part-time position of Typist Clerk II. She was later advised of another full-time position in the City of Hermosa Beach City Clerk’s Office. She interviewed and was hired as a Senior Office Assistant.
Outcome and Benefits:
Tanesha made such a positive impression with Carson, she was asked to continue working part-time one day a week while fulfilling her duties with Hermosa Beach.
"I'm thankful for the job developers and counselors I worked with at GAIN and the Carson One-Stop Center for giving me the tools I needed to re-enter the workforce. I especially want to thank Michael Seale at the Carson Center who saw something in me and knew I could succeed in the Carson position."
