PEERS URGE JOBSEEKERS TO USE THE FREE GRANT SERVICES NOW.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA– Brevard Workforce, the area authority on workforce development, hosted two information sharing events on February 26 and 28. Those eligible to receive assistance through the National Emergency Grant (NEG) were invited to hear valuable insights from local employers and aerospace peers who have benefited from the Brevard Workforce NEG program.
More than thirty-five NEG eligible jobseekers attended the events, which focused on urging participants to “Jumpstart” their career through the help of Brevard Workforce. In addition to learning about the services available through the local workforce agency, participants gained valuable insights from local leaders, Ben Yeargin, Corporate Recruiter of Craig Technologies and Thomas Bliss, HR Mangager of Craig Technologies, a nationwide technology firm that delivers award-winning engineering and technical solutions. Yeargin and Bliss discussed their selection process which is based on hiring individuals who best match their company’s culture. Craig Technologies is one of several firms willing to provide skills training for the right candidates.
With only three months remaining before the ending of the NEG grant, eligible job seekers are urged to contact Brevard Workforce and take advantage of the enhanced career services available. The NEG program was created for aerospace workers who were affected by the shuttle retirement to transition into a new career. Services include: résumé support, workshops, career planning, skills re-training, on-the-job training opportunities, entrepreneurial support and more.
“Those who have been laid off from employment related to NASA program realignment or those who are still employed and are anticipating a layoff prior to June 14, 2013, should contact Brevard Workforce to receive assistance now,” stated Lisa Rice, president of Brevard Workforce. “Do not wait for your severance or reemployment assistance to run out.”
