Job Search/Job Readiness (JSJR)

This four-week, twenty-day workshop is focused on helping WorkFirst New Jersey recipients obtain stable employment at the earliest opportunity. To enhance job prospects, JSJR participants receive assistance identifying their job interests and aptitudes as well as in acquiring the employment skills and supports (such as child care and transportation) needed to find and keep a job. The workshop covers a range of topics, such as resume writing, interview skills, and job search, each geared toward reinforcing the message that work is valued.
