Christian Community Action in Lewisville, TX provides comprehensive services that alleviate suffering, bring hope and change lives. Life skills and Job Readiness VISTA, Steven Tillman, has created CCA’s Job Readiness Training Program. The program curriculum breaks down into five-day seminar-like sessions, running from 1 to 2 hours each. The curriculum developed by Steven strongly emphasises:
- Career Management
- Career Assessment & Communication
- Resumes & Cover Letters
- Professionalism & Self Management
- Online Professionalism & Networking
- Interview Skills
Clients will be able to receive training and full assistance with their employment matters during the full work-week and use the skills and information acquired the next week. Weekend trainings are to be held, as well; Steven is currently considering options for streamlining the process a bit further in order to accommodate those whom having other obligations during a regular work-week but are still interested in training.
An official start-date for the Job readiness Program has been set for August 13th, 2018, and training cycles will repeat weekly. Several new volunteers have been screened and brought on board for training. Other employment related programs exist in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but the Job Readiness Training program which Steven has developed is unique because it approaches employment matters not just from the perspective of a job seeker being well prepared, but also well informed and well adjusted for what the employment market has to offer.
Now progressing within stage-two of his program’s vision, Steven has met with and secured two employers whom are both eager to utilize CCA’s new program for recruitment purposes. With a growing number of North Texas citizens finding it necessary to secure multiple sources of employment in order to avoid entering into debilitating poverty, those who choose to take the opportunity to benefit from the lessons
offered by the Job Readiness Training program may secure tremendous and empowering outcomes.
