The San Bernardino County Workforce Development Board is honored to welcome returning veterans and we wholeheartedly appreciate your commitment and service to our country.
If you are a veteran in need of job placement assistance, we can help. Visit any one of the three County of San Bernardino America’s Job Centers of California and there we will help you build a career.
Our board administers federal funding for job training and placement within San Bernardino County. We work closely with the County’s employers to identify the skills they seek in employees and we provide the funds for training to enter those jobs. At the end of training, we help place trainees into a job.
Again, on behalf of all of us, we thank you and are proud of your courage and commitment.
Peter Andersen, an active 69-year-old veteran with 20 years of experience as a retired probation officer, was determined to work and stay involved with the community. He needed additional help in researching today’s job market and was referred to the WDB for training and Veteran’s Assistance. The WDB provided Peter with personalized case management and career advice. He received job referrals, one-on-one assistance with his resume, attended job search workshops, and was provided with help in obtaining the fingerprinted background check required for many of the positions for which he was applying.
Peter is now successfully employed full-time as a campus monitor at a high school in the Snowline School District. He is especially thankful to the WDB for assistance with computer skills training and for a referral to the Veteran’s Networking Club. Peter said the WDB helped him “…find a realistic career goal that suited my age and physical ability. I am so appreciative of the service I received. I am now able to support my household.”
