After nearly 10 weeks of Job Readiness classes at Life Bridge, we asked ourselves “what’s next for our participants?”
The answer came in two directions: further education or employment. So we devised two “What’s Next” panels. For some, what may come next is job training or career education that is industry specific. To that end, we hosted a panel of representatives from area schools such as Star of Texas Dental School, Austin Community College, Career Life Ministries Electrical program and Virginia College. Several short-term certification programs were highlighted during the discussion.
A second panel focused on Employment as “What’s Next” for many LBJC graduates. Our panel included reps from Wag-a-Bag convenience stores, Goodwill Staffing Center, About Disruption Technical Recruiting, Sam’s Club and a Human Resources consultant. Our Job Readiness students had opportunity to ask about resumes, applications, networking, persistence in job hunting and how to interview the employer.
A great deal of wisdom, information and sound advice was given and received. Video’s below!
