  • Finally, you can participate in our very effective Job Search Center. The process begins with a CareerLink Orientation, followed by an eligibility appointment with a Career Navigator.  After entering the program, participants are trained in job search techniques for one full week (a 35 hour commitment).  At the end of the training, staff work with jobseekers to connect with employers by providing job leads, by reinforcing the job search techniques, by facilitating social media and in-person networking possibilities, and by opening access to training and other resources. 
    • Over the years, the Job Search Center has helped many people to find success in their job search.  Click here for examples.  The Center offers an impressive array of services.  It also has a clear idea of the pitfalls involved in job searching.  Consider the benefits of a job search conducted in the Job Search Center.  If your job search is at a standstill or if you know that you'll need some structure to get started, the Job Search Center is a great option for 5 to 15 hours per week as you require it.
