Open Your Door to Opportunity- Strategies to Gainful Employment

What is gainful employment?

In broad language, gainful employment refers to an employment situation where the employee receives consistent work and payment from the employer. The key is to secure employment that puts you in the status of gainful employment.

We will explore ways in which an individual can discover, research and connect the right door to their best career by way of current employment tools. The tools in these workshops will enhance your employment toolbox, identify your skills gaps and allow you to be more confident along the journey to employment.

Opportunity is knocking and it's time for you to open that door.

This free workforce track is ideal for job seekers, students, career switchers, transitioning military and individuals that are a crossroad in their career.
