Job opportunities and basic skills

Everyone needs to read to get a job or advance in a current job. Our FREE, 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.

JOBS sessions are 6 weeks, in-person in the Reading Center at Goodwill or online.

Each class features an interactive presentation with career specialists from the KLC, MI Works!, and Goodwill Industries. 

Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. 

All are welcome! To register, call Rose at (269) 849-9396 or click “Register today” below to email her.
