THE FIRST STEP - ENROLLMENT
Participation in our program begins with attending a registration session. These sessions are facilitated by friendly, experienced staff who will begin by explaining the Dislocated Worker Program to you. Next, you will complete the state-required forms, with the facilitator walking you through every form and answering any questions you may have.
After attending a registration session, you will be contacted by your counselor to arrange a one-on-one session at our offices. In this meeting with your counselor, you will establish a relationship and share your story. This meeting is all about YOU: your education, your work history, your family, health, finances - you want to give your counselor your full history so they can best help you determine a plan to achieve your goals. At the completion of this meeting, you are enrolled and can start taking advantage of our program's benefits!
After meeting with your counselor, you will start working on your action steps - the items in your individual employment plan (IEP) that require your attention. Training, résumé assistance, workshops, interview preparation, and financial support are just a few features we can assist you with. You and your counselor will monitor your progress toward reaching your goals, and adjust you IEP as necessary.
Your counselor and our Résumé Specialist can help you polish your résumé, and we offer an excellent résumé development workshop for you to learn valuable development skills for yourself. If you need immediate assistance or are looking to jump start the process, you can download one of our sample résumés to help you get started.
