Career changes can be difficult. You want to improve your career but don’t know where to start. The growing demands and changes within the workforce can make job seekers hesitant to apply for better paying positions. As an effort to aid, the Workforce Development Board has partnered with Humankind to lead the WIOA Title 1 Adult worker program.
Through this partnership, Humankind coordinates resources to prepare individuals for living wage careers within the region. Humankind is responsible for outreach throughout the region and helping under-resourced job seekers or those with barriers to employment.
Along with career assistance and employment opportunities, Workforce Development helps seekers to develop valuable skills to meet the needs of the workforce. Workshops for resume preparation, job search techniques, interviewing and basic computer skills are just a few of the many services found within Workforce Development.
Job seekers will find access to labor market information, job placement, recruitment and labor exchange services. Financial education and salary information are vital when making a career change and making smart decisions about your future. Working in partnership with the Virginia Employment Commission, Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services, Adult Education of Central Virginia, Old Dominion Job Corp, Central Virginia Community College, local departments of Social Services and other education or community stakeholders throughout the region, the staff at Humankind coordinates resources to prepare individuals for living wage careers within the region.
If you are struggling or know someone who could use some help, point them in the direction of Workforce Development. Resources are available that can and will change your life.
