Women Returning to Work

Put Your Experience To Work Again...With Our HelpSome of our most valuable resources are just getting ready to return to the workforce.  One of them could be you.

There are many, women in particular, who may have opted out of the workforce, perhaps interrupting or pausing a career for family or other reasons. Many of these women, perhaps like you, are holding skills, experience, insights and talents we could use right now.

But some of you may be wondering if you are ready, and others may be worried about how things may have changed.

“It sounds hard. I’m afraid to jump back in after so long.”

Some of you may need a little encouragement.  We can help with that.  We help many people over that hurdle.  We do skills testing, so you know where you stand. We can help if you want to consider a career change from  what you did in the past.  We can help you understand just what are the in-demand jobs in Brevard. There are workshops and classes to take, if you need them. There is paperwork to do, sure, to get started; but we can help.

The fact is, almost everyone could benefit from a computer literacy update, and if brushing up means more comprehensive help is needed, we have classes for that (some are online, which you can do at your own pace).

 

“I had a good job; I was comfortable I knew what to do, but technology has changed, the equipment is probably not even the same. I don’t know if my skills even translate to today.”

One very fine tool is called PROVE IT! which quickly helps assess skills over more than 1000 categories; and in turn, your skills can quickly be communicated to a potential employer. It lets you PROVE you have the skills you have, no matter the number of years you may have been away from the work.

 

“I’m over 50 and I just don’t think people are looking to hire women over 50.”

You might have been right at one point in time, but today’s market is ready. With unemployment very low, it means some businesses are struggling to find the people to fill certain jobs. FIND OUT MORE. It may be the perfect time to MAKE YOUR MOVE.
