Assisting You in Your Job Search
Our 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.
Employment Search, Placement and Retention
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. Many employers work primarily through Pathways to fill positions that they never post in a newspaper or on a website.
Weekly Employment Search and Support Session
Tuesday mornings at Pathways finds our 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 bring the entire group together for Booster Sessions. At the beginning of every month, calendars will be available at the front desk to keep you apprised of the upcoming topics.
Booster Session Topics include: Hidden Rules of the Workplace, Writing a Better Cover Letter, Online Job Searching and Applications, Dressing for Success at Job Interviews
These Employment Search and support 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.
