Job opportunities and basic skills
Everyone needs to read to get a job or advance in a current job. Our FREE, online JOBS program teaches essential skills for employment such as writing effective resumes and cover letters, applying for jobs online, and interview skills.
We’ve updated the curriculum to specifically address the current climate of employment; for example, focusing on applying for unemployment and navigating the system, and what kinds of jobs to expect during and after COVID-19.
The 11-week summer session begins on July 15th. Classes are held on Wednesdays, 9:00 a.m – 11:00 a.m., through WebEx. Each class features an interactive presentation with career specialists from the KLC, MI Works!, and Goodwill Industries.
JOBS tutoring session: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
JOBS presentation: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
