Employment Services to Help You Achieve Your Employment Goals
Flat River Outreach Ministries (FROM) understands that employment barriers can lead to frustration, financial hardship, and a host of other challenges. Through a variety of employment services, we partner with those who are unemployed, underemployed, or unsatisfied with their jobs. We help you overcome the barriers to successful employment and bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be. It’s not just about your career; it’s about your life.
By partnering with our trained Empowerment Coaches, FROM provides employment services, support, and coaching to clients on
- Job Search Strategies: It’s not easy to find a job and traditional job search techniques may not be very effective. What worked 10 years ago doesn’t work today. FROM can train you in effective job search strategies and help you develop a plan of action.
- Networking Skills: Only 10-20% of all available jobs are ever posted, so how do most people find the other 80-90% of available jobs? Mostly through networking. Networking is critical for finding a job and developing your career path. Don’t know how to network? Don’t worry, we’ll show you how.
- Interviewing Skills: Want to be polished and ready for an upcoming interview? Do you know how to answer the hard questions? Can you demonstrate how your skills and experience can benefit the potential employer? FROM is a safe and supportive environment where you can practice interviewing with an Empowerment Coach and we’ll even give you key tips that will help you stand out from the rest.
- Resumes and Cover Letters: Your resume and cover letter is often what an employer sees first, so we’ll help you learn how to write a resume and cover letter that gets noticed.
- Financial Management: Unemployment or underemployment presents many financial challenges. We’ll coach you on how to better manage your finances and bills while you look for a position that better fits your need.
- Computer Skills Workshops: FROM offers computer skills workshops to help those who want to learn how to use the computer, increase their computer skills or bush up on programs needed for a new position. Visit our calendar to see if we have upcoming classes that fit your needs.
- Community Resources: While FROM offers a variety of services and programs to Lowell-area residents in need, we realize that the community also has resources. We’ll point you to the right ones. You can even find some right now here.
