(L to R) Punch Studio Assistant Manager Esmeralda Soto with , Margarita Santos, Jocelyn Rodriguez (career coach), Eloisa Madueno, Jazmina Chavarria, and Sandra Flores
The Vernon-Central WorkSource Center at Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) recently placed four women at jobs with a national supplier of home, gift and stationary products.

Eloisa Madueno, Jazmina Chavarria, Margarita Santos, and Sandra Flores struggled for months to find employment due language barriers.

A career coach at the Vernon-Central WSC, run by EWDD partner Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), provided the women assistance with resume building, interview techniques, and job leads.

The coach helped them build resumes and prepared them to interview for a packing associate position with Punch Studio LLC, based in Culver City. They were all hired and began work the following week.

They now have stable employment and are enjoying their jobs, schedules, and friendship.
