Employment Boot Camp focuses on providing clients with the support and guidance they need to secure meaningful employment.
This program uses computers to explore and navigate the existing opportunities in today’s job market. Although clients may come to the program expecting to be directed towards employment, our staff carefully try and determine their strongest skills. We then match skills with jobs that are an appropriate fit so clients will be more likely to continue working there.
The process for securing a job requires commitment and persistence. Workshops are strategically planned to develop skills to build resumes and cover letters. Mock interviews also occur to help participants mentally prepare when faced with a panel of employers.
