HELPING JOB SEEKERS
Assess Yourself
Discover the core, transferable skills that you can bring to a job - any job - through a reference-based assessment of your education, volunteering and work experiences. Develop your story and better position yourself for your career – even if you don’t have the previous experience or the network to “get you in.”
Sell Yourself
Bolster your personal brand with a web page and supplement to your resume that highlights and makes tangible, the otherwise intangible value that you can bring to employers. Find jobs at companies where your soft skills and attitude will lead to success.
