Foundations of Jobseeker Preparation




A good job exists for everyone, regardless of background or experience. Finding a job that pays well and offers opportunities for advancement in a competitive labor market, however, relies on a combination of factors: a well-written resume, strong interviewing skills, an understanding of how to find open positions, and a large network to provide referrals. Most of all, it requires belief in one's own value. Without workforce development programs, too many find themselves stuck in positions they don't like, earning too little for true self-sufficiency, or getting shut out of the labor market altogether. In this course, you will learn about the Employment Readiness Continuum, taking an Asset-Based Approach to jobseeker coaching, and the fundamental resources and skills every jobseeker needs to land a job that will put them on the path to financial and personal success.
