Employment and Life Skills

Step One: Employment

Job Readiness is a week long workshop that teaches job skills and encourages individuals to make positive changes in their lives.

Conducted by a team of volunteers and staff, the training encourages accountability and responsibility. Participants gain insight and skills for effective communications, job search tactics, resume development, networking, conflict management, reflective listening, dressing for success, interviewing and job retention.

 

If offered partnership, participants also receive a one-on-one job placement counselor. Counselors assist all graduates with potential employment and follow-up support.
