During this training, you will learn the basics of job search including creating a sample application/resume, how and where to look for appropriate jobs, networking, applying for jobs via online applications and submitting cover letter and resumes. Additionally, you will learn tips for interviewing and follow up after an interview.
Prior to searching for employment, often it is helpful to learn more about an industry of interest. Through informational interviews, you can gain important information to help you in setting your employment goals.
A Consultant will assist you with developing a list of employers, reaching out and securing informational interviews as well as creating a list of questions to ask during the session with an employer.
In addition to Informational Interviews, Jobs Shadowing is an extremely helpful way to learn about various jobs with an employer. Like Informational Interviewing, a Consultant will assist in determining industries to shadow, reaching out and creating questions to ask during a job shadow.
While in this program, your Consultant will collaborate with you to do what it takes to secure employment. From creating a resume and cover letter, applying for jobs and practicing for interviews to assisting in follow up after a job offer.

Often, individuals report the most stress on the job in their first 90 days. During this time of learning a new role you may realize a need for additional “coaching” to learn the job. A Consultant can walk you through the onboarding process and provide support during the beginning of your job. Consultants are available to coach on or off the job and to connect with your employer in person, via phone or email to see how work is going and if there are areas for improvement.
Interacting with coworkers, both peers and supervisors/managers can be very stressful. There are many reasons social interaction can have a negative impact on employment, from fear to impress, not knowing what topics to talk about or being uncomfortable initiating conversations. Through Social Coaching, a Consultant will help identify goals for improving social interaction and a plan to begin addressing these areas on the job.
