Georgina is a career navigator working one-on-one with job seekers. We asked her what she likes about workforce development and how she enjoys spending her time off.

If you had $30,000 to donate to a workforce development program, what would you want done with it?

I would donate $30,000 to a workforce program that offers individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in various skill training courses and, most importantly, connects them to accessible transportation services, providing them with a dependable way to arrive to interviews and work on time. Lack of accessible transportation is an enormous challenge for many job seekers in San Diego. To me, funding a program that makes transportation accessible and no longer an issue, is an effective and efficient workforce development designed to withstand economic change.

What do you like best about working in workforce development?

Workforce development educates job seekers on valuable employment and career training opportunities within a competitive economic society. With six years of workforce development experience, I strive to inform and provide career counseling services to individuals in our community so they can meet the current and future business needs. Seeing firsthand job seekers develop new skills to grow within the workforce and maintain employment to support their families brings me joy. Using a more holistic approach to help improve job seekers and employee’s productivity, as well as developing soft and hard skills, is a win for me!

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

Imagine a weekend filled with sports activities and eating chocolate all day! I enjoy spending quality time with my family and three amazing kids. You could consider me a “sports mom” who will run a mile while pushing a stroller or eating ice cream on the beach with my 3-year-old. Kids grow up fast and leave for college in a blink of an eye. Therefore, I love making lasting memories of them playing softball, riding BMX bikes and dancing at a gymnastics class. During October, I always look forward to the pumpkin patch season and visiting Julian during the winter to throw snowballs. At the end of the weekend, when it’s time for bed and they’re all tucked in, it is a fulfilling moment full of happiness for me.
