Did somebody say, “looking for a job is easy”? Don’t think we ever heard that. Mostly this is what people say. “I’d rather have teeth pulled, than look for a job”… “Nobody will hire me … I’m too old, I’m too shy, I’m too young, I’m too……”. “What am I going to do? Where do I start?”
Being out of work can be stressful and worrisome! The friendly staff at SELACO WDB understand the many difficulties of being out of work and can provide the tools and support that will aid in your job search. The Career Center in Cerritos and the Career Center at the Norwalk EDD office offer a wide variety of no cost workshops, programs and assistance to those who are laid off, unemployed or underemployed.
