The program is open to anyone with any proficiency level in any particular skill set. We work with the applicant in order to identify abilities and strengths that can translate into marketable job skills. The program is designed to assist Volunteer to Job applicants with little or no job skills.

The Process

The Jobs Seekers Peer Support program will take an applicant from an initial assessment through a process that builds specific skills necessary for success in today’s workplace.

Throughout the program, applicants will participate in resume writing seminars, helping them fully comprehend the skill in which they possess. Throughout the program, the applicant will be taught the social skills necessary to successfully thrive in the workplace.

Interview skills will also be developed so that the applicant will be able to articulate his skills to a potential employer. The use of simulated interviews will help the build the applicant’s confidence in the interview setting. SHARE! will work to help develop a 5-year plan: A roadmap for setting and reaching immediate and long-term goals.
