Many people who recently lost their job have not created a resume or cover letter, or been on a job interview in many years. They may not know how to use social media, especially LinkedIn, as part of their job search. Many have never even heard of an applicant tracking system.
The job market has changed. You are going to need to learn all of this, as well as know what jobs are in the highest demand and what you need to do to get hired. We have created this blog to provide free assistance to give you the tools to succeed. Everything you need as part of your job search tool kit is right here.
If you are unemployed, one of the best things you can do is to see if you qualify for a WIOA grant. Make an appointment for us to call and in a few minutes, we can see if you qualify.
We are best known for helping unemployed people get a WIOA grant for the unemployed to help them get trained, certified, and then placed in their field–at no cost to them! We love helping unemployed people get back to work. Our experience and background make us uniquely qualified.
Today’s best practices for job hunting are quite different than before. Much of what you will see on the Internet is already outdated. The wrong resume format will make YOU look old and outdated. The wrong font might make it harder for your resume to get past an applicant tracking system meaning your resume will not be seen by a human being. A poorly optimized LinkedIn profile will hurt your chances. If you are over 50, you need to plan your job search in a way to help overcome ageism to get hired.
In this blog, we will try to give you all the tools you need to get the most out of your job search. You will see tips and strategies for all the above and more. If you are unemployed, you might even be eligible for a government grant that can really help you get a better, higher-paying job.
We assist veterans, unemployed (and under-employed) workers who may be eligible for a government grant that will pay for them to get trained, certified and help them get placed in their career and achieve their goals. Feel free to reach out and see what you qualify for!

Are you unemployed? There is a little known federal grant program that can pay for you to get trained, certified and placed in your career at no cost to you. Availability and amounts are based on where you live. If you qualify, this program can pay up to $15,000 to get trained, certified, and then get help getting placed in their career. The amount and availability vary by county
This can be used to get certified in fields such as Cyber-Security, Information Technology, Project Management, Business Analysis, and more. Some of the most highly sought-after certifications include CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco, Project Management Professional (PMP), Scrum Master, and others.
If you don’t qualify for a grant, see if you qualify for an Income Share Agreement. This is a no risk option–you pay nothing until you get placed and there is no interest.
