Plan to attend the Job Fair


I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, consideration and support you have given me during Job Club these past few weeks.

For me it's much more than learning to write a resume, filling out an application properly, interviewing techniques and networking. It's more about forgiving yourself and former employers, being more respectful of yourself and others. I learned to care more about people and that I'm not perfect. Who is? I struggle with confidence but I'm working on it. I met some friends for life. And you are one of them.

Respectfully, Suzann

Job Training Programs
Funded by the Workforce Investment Act (WIA)

The Job Club is an intensive job seeking course covering such topics as: goal setting, resume development, interviewing, networking, cold calling and targeting unadvertised jobs. The job club service is followed up with individual employment counseling and case management.

Customer Service Call Center Training

We also offer a Customer Service Training Program that gives individuals training in the various aspects of effective phone communication and customer service. This training will prepare participants for a career in telemarketing and can be applied equally well to any position where a person works with the public.

Mature Workers' Job & Career Fairs

We have operated job fairs in Cleveland and Akron. The benefits are good publicity, recruitment for our programs, and development of new partnerships with employers. Job seekers get the opportunity to meet with companies that are there specifically to hire an experienced older worker.
