Job Readiness Training


The Job Readiness Training provides instruction to adults on employment research, composing resumes, cover letters and assembling portfolios. It also includes assessing individual skills, abilities and identifying transferable skills. It offers recommendations on how to engage in networking as well as preparation for interviews and interviewing practice.

Participants utilize this information in determining their employment goals and developing a Career Development Plan by the end of the training. Trainings are usually scheduled to be held Monday-Friday and consist of 25-30 hours of classroom instruction and must have a minimum of 8-10 participants. Trainings can also be done individually for an hourly rate.

Trainings can be conducted on-site at an ERI facility or off-site at a client’s facility, local church, community center/organization, company, etc.
