Employment Training and Services

Our employment consultants provide one-on-one career guidance and training to job seekers with barriers to employment.

  • Resume Development

    Our staff can assist you in preparing professional, quality resumes and cover letters. We teach you the skills to write a resume employers will read, and we work with job seekers to develop their work histories and coach them on how to improve their professional presentation.

  • Application Assistance

    We can help teach you how to properly complete a job application and suggest ways to improve your chances of getting noticed.

  • Interview Preparation

    Employment consultants can train you on interview techniques and arrange for mock interviews.

  • Career Guidance

    Consultants provide career guidance and can help you find work that matches your abilities and preferences. We can lead you through a process of evaluation and help you identify which jobs would be right for you.

  • Support Services

    Our job club meets monthly to explore issues affecting workers with disabilities. We offer support and information on finding and maintaining employment.

  • Training on Workplace Skills and Employer Expectations

    Often referred to as soft skills, these skills allow us to adapt or get along in most situations at work. They are the skills that dictate how we interact with supervisors, coworkers, and customers, and they include our personality traits, personal hygiene, timeliness, and interpersonal skills.

  • Job Coaching

    For people requiring additional support or training, we can provide job coaching services. We will work with you and your employer to help you learn the skills you’ll need to be successful. We have an array of resources available to us and can assist you in finding your learning style. We can prepare tools and resources to help you learn your job and we can help you explore assistive technology options that may be required.

  • Lending Library

  • Information and Referral to Additional Services

    Oftentimes, employment is only one piece of the puzzle. Our fully trained staff is knowledgeable about other resources available to job seekers who may struggle with one or more issues. We can provide information and referral to a wide array of community services including low-income housing, drug and alcohol counseling, mental health services, and benefits planning specialists.

We follow interns through the year as they develop job skills and then work with interns after graduation to find employment.
