The Main Frame Job Readiness Program provides our guests with the transferable skills and personal support they need to succeed in finding and maintaining a stable, living-wage job in today’s job market. The program is guided by the following principles:
- Stable, living-wage income is necessary to avoid and/or overcome homelessness
- Many of our guests are employable, but may need support and assistance in their job search and employment skills
- A holistic, flexible approach will best empower guests to find and keep employment
- Proactivity and communication are key to successful employment
Students Receive One-On-One Help With:
- Building a coherent, functional resume
- Assessing their unique skills and interests
- Online job search
- Job applications
- Interview skills
- Money management
- Professional self-presentation
Students work closely with our Main Frame Coordinator, personal mentors, and guest teachers, as well as representatives from Georgia’s Own Credit Union. Participants are also eligible for other complementary services and receive ongoing support in order to maintain employment.
