Training gives people skills to land a job

Bartholomew County Works is offering a week-long Job Readiness Training Workshop, starting Monday.

The deadline to apply for the workshop is 4 p.m. Friday.

The program seeks to help members improve their life, gain full-time employment and achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Resources are provided on topics such as transportation, finances and budget setting, and attire. These services continue for at least a person’s first year on the job.

Participants will be required to attend the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. week-long workshop next week. Topics will include applications and resumes, interviews, personality and skill inventories, 30-second commercial, networking, dealing with stress, conflict resolution, money management and healthy choices. This also is an opportunity to meet potential employers attending segments of the workshop.
