If you want to develop your career pathway and you are between the ages of 16 and 24, YAVAPAI@WORK can help you thrive in your professional journey! Our goal is to build economic success through workforce development partnerships, so it’s in our best interest to work with both employers and job seekers. Here are some of the services we offer:
Orientation and Training
At YAVAPAI@WORK, we strive to remove the barriers to employment. We believe that training is essential to develop skills like effective time management, job strategies, and goal setting. All of these skills are crucial for job seekers because that’s what most employers are looking for in a potential candidate.
That’s why we offer workshops and organize job fairs: We want to prepare the right people for the right job. Our services also include access to job postings, individual assessments, and on-site orientation.
Career Readiness Credential
Sometimes employers struggle to find qualified people, but our Arizona Career Readiness Credential can make you stand out among other job seekers. It helps prepare you for the job market by assessing seven skills:
- Applied mathematics
- Reading for information
- Workplace data and graphics
- Communicating effectively
- Teamwork and collaboration
- Critical thinking and problem solving
Are you interested in earning the credential? Click here for more information or to enroll. This service is available for job seekers at no charge.
Another initiative to help employees and job seekers is our Rapid Response program.
When businesses have to downsize and lay off employees, YAVAPAI@WORK offers assistance through a wide range of services like resume writing and interviewing workshops. Our goal is to connect people with employment opportunities to help them find a new job quickly.
