Bright Beginnings Workforce Week: Ready, Set, Work!
Our Bright Beginnings Workforce Week from October 11-14 will connect and re-connect homeless parents with jobs, job preparation training, education options and training/skill development programs that will increase self-sufficiency and support their transition from homelessness. Our long-time partner, Capital One, will prepare homeless parents to get the interview and get the job with a training session that will be followed by interview and résumé coaching and one-on-one mock interviews. Other community partners will help parents dress for success and cover practical tips for a successful interview and work experience. Our Workforce Week will culminate with a Job Fair on October 14. We currently have commitments from Capital One, Safeway and Web Pulse LLC/Comcast Xfinity to interview our parents for open positions with their companies. If you have open positions, there’s still time to sign up for our Job Fair on October 14, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Contact Heidi Bluming for more information at 202-842-9090.
