fresh start job program
Fresh Start is a job search assistance ministry. The program is designed to aid job seekers by identifying client skills and interests, assisting with resume and interview advice and connecting them to appropriate job listings and career training opportunities.
Many job seekers find themselves faced with challenges, including layoffs and terminations. Job seekers meet with Fresh Start counselors who assess their education, skill set and personal interests, to help them decide what types of positions would best suit each individual. They offer assistance with improving resumes, sharpening interviewing skills and presenting a professional appearance.
Counselors then connect clients with community agencies to help them build resumes, find job leads and select jobs best suited to their knowledge, skills, and abilities.
Several GED Preparatory Classes are help on campus to prepare clients to pass the GED Tests.
They connect clients with seminars/webinars designed to give job seekers tools to more effectively market themselves and their skills.
Fresh Start maintains a comprehensive job search website with articles on employment search topics, links to job search websites, local resources, assessment tools and advice for job seekers.
Fresh Start Counselors also help job seekers with troubled backgrounds by connecting them with Federal Bonding Programs and Sealing and Expunging Programs to help them overcome criminal records.
