Assisting You in Your Job Search
Our Employment Placement Specialists will become your coaches and advocates as you conduct your job search. Through our placement programs and supports, we will walk alongside you in the process.
Along with coaching you in your job search, our Placement Specialists will also look for matches between our participants and the employment opportunities that come our way. We can help you access wage and equipment funds and subsidies. We will also continue to work with you once you have the job to assist with any issues and concerns that come up in the all-important first months on the job. Many employers work primarily through Pathways to fill positions that they never post in a newspaper or on a website.
Weekly Networking Session
Tuesday mornings at Pathways finds our Employment Placement Specialists meeting individually with each of our job seekers, discussing how their job search went the previous week(s). They coach, encourage, discuss opportunities of which they are aware, sometimes even sending seekers out to interviews on the spot. At other times they will meet with the entire group together, bringing in employers to talk about what they look for in new employees, or give the group opportunities to discuss their successes and frustrations and learn from one another.
These networking sessions are an important part of the job search process at Pathways, ensuring our participants have the assistance, inspiration and support to continue on in the hard work of job searching.
