Our Response to COVID-19
COVID-19 has touched nearly every aspect of people’s lives, around the U.S. and worldwide. As the enormity of job losses became clear, we knew there was a role for us to help the people most impacted — who are frequently low income and people of color. Leveraging our career training network and program tools, we’ve set out to address the urgent need of helping jobseekers re-enter the workforce during and after this unprecedented time.
CareerWork$ is excited to be launching Work$Ready, a free, online job readiness training, to help job seekers build their confidence and develop the skills they need to obtain employment and succeed.
Our free, three-week classes are facilitated by our long-standing partners and taught live by experienced workforce instructors online. The curriculum — pulled from our BankWork$ and CareerWork$ Medical programs – includes key topics such as professional presence, resume writing and interview practice as well as soft skills needed to land and keep a job.
We are proud to work with many of our CareerWork$ partners to offer this course in 12 markets across the country. Anyone interested in participating in a Work$Ready course should contact the partner working in their region for more information.
If you’re interested in participating in a Work$Ready course, contact the regional partner closest to you. If you’d like to learn more about the program in general, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
