There is help and hope for women facing difficult circumstances who need to return to the job market. JVS provides assistance to women from all social and economic backgrounds in Southeastern Michigan who must find a job following unemployment, divorce or the death or disability of a spouse or partner. In January, Springboard to Success combines computer training with JVS’s hallmark Women to Work program.
Offered at no charge to participants, the program helps women assess their vocational interests, identify work-related skills, prepare resumes, develop interviewing and networking skills and launch a job search. It also includes hands-on Microsoft Office Suite 2010 training.
Springboard to Success begins with an informational meeting at 9 a.m. on Jan. 10. The program starts on January 15 and will meet from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at JVS Human Services in Southfield.
