Please Note: for the convenience of our participants; and, due to the lack of funding or time to have coaches on staff - most of our services are being transitioned remotely to better serve individuals. Some face-to-face instructions are still being conducted in adhoc locations around the twin cities; also, in collaborations with training programs, schools, employers, etc. By doing this, we're better equipped to add more experienced coaches who are able to volunteer their time from anywhere and at anytime; this provides opportunity for personalized action plan, more feedback and follow up. What's new: we're asking all new participants to submit a 1-2 minutes video - which shows us a little bit of who you are. While we understand this may feel uncomfortable for some people, it's important that we know why you are interested in the program. We want to hear about your work experience, your degree/desire job, and your personal experience finding work. You can upload from your phone too.
As a professional in the US, you'll most likely run across a company that'll require you to a video interview; skype conferencing for business meetings, etc. We want you to be prepared.
Please ensure you're working with a reputable agency, as evaluating agencies are required to adhere to professional standards. We can also connect you to training programs, with upgrading your skills, converting your curriculum vitae (CV) to a U.S. style résumé, finding a livable wage job, or starting your own business.
