Good Jobs for People in Need
Thrive DC understands that a good paying job is essential to a stable life. Through our Employment Support and Real Opportunity Training Program we help those individuals for whom employment is a barrier to stability and not an asset.
For clients who have skills and only need help finding a new job in their field, Thrive DC provides two accessible times to use our computer lab:
- Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM are for Employment Workshops in the Computer Lab. Clients will have access to one-on-one help with volunteers to improve their resumes, look for jobs online, and assist with completing job applications.
Individual Case Management
For individuals who need more support in finding employment, Thrive DC provides two case managers that will tailor their approach to an individual’s need. Topics covered in case management can include:
- Employment Goals and Expectations
- Effective Resume and Cover Letter Writing
- Interviewing Skills
- Workplace Communication
- Job Searching Techniques
- Financial Planning and Money Management
- Mock Interviews
Our Real Opportunity Training Program (Real Opps) is available for individuals who have a large gap in their employment history, are looking to change career fields, or need new skills to join the work force.
Thrive DC needs volunteers with career experience to help our clients take the next step in their own careers.
If you are interested in volunteering with our Tues/Thurs Workshops, please sign up for a Volunteer Orientation and contact the Workforce Development Manager David Vicenty at (202) 503-1532 or [email protected].
