Meet Tanesha Hudson

Workforce Challenge:

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.

Workforce Solution:

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:

Meet Tanesha Hudson

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."
