At Work Prep, we meet individuals where they are at, and offer several pathways that individuals may choose to assist them in moving forward with their employment goals.
Whether you’ve never worked before, would like to get back to work after involvement with the justice system, have roadblocks in your way to reaching your employment goals, are re-entering the workforce as an older worker, or simply need a hand improving the effectiveness of your resume and cover letter, we can support you with the tools and training to reach your goals.
With you leading the way; together, we’ll explore your goals, determine your needs and the services that are best suited to support you in increasing your skills, building new and existing strengths and addressing any challenges you see that might get in the way. This plan will serve as a map to show your progress, successes and any need for changes and exploration of new opportunities on your journey to employment.
