Resume Development consists of a 30-minute presentation on what goes into building an effective resume and then each Job Seeker is paired with a coach to create, develop and refine their individual resume. The goal is for each Job Seeker to walk away with an optimized document that showcases their skills and accomplishments that will appeal to and impress prospective employers.
Pathways to Employment is a high-energy workshop series focused on networking, which compels participants to utilize their connections to identify job opportunities. From pinpointing their strengths, developing their personal brand along with building and optimizing their LinkedIn profiles, Job Seekers will establish a competitive edge by learning to navigate their network and leverage opportunities for employment.
