The mission of The Job Seeker Project is to help the unemployed find nonprofit jobs. We target individuals who are under-served, out of work, on unemployment, on public assistance, and living at/or below poverty. We aim to specifically reach veterans, high school graduates, working seniors, emancipated youth, and working aged youth. Participants access training through our free, online workshops and collaborative partners.

Job seekers will learn: The Nonprofit Basics, The Nonprofit Employee Mindset - Visualizing Mission-Based Dreams and Goals, Working Daily as a Nonprofit Employee, and The Importance of Networking & Relationship Building in the Nonprofit Sector.
Job readiness skills help employees learn how to interact with supervisors and co-workers. Employers value employees who communicate effectively and are professional, no matter what technical skills a job may require. Every job requires good social skills/interpersonal skills. We help job seekers learn skills such as: effective communication, having a positive attitude, teamwork, active listening, conflict resolution, and professionalism. Currently, our specific training areas are: Financial literacy / money management, Sector-based skills, Understanding employer expectations for punctuality and performance, and "soft" skills necessary for employment such as, interviewing and resumes.

Job seekers learn what to expect at Orientation Day such as, the human resources process, time management, and their role in community service. They will also learn about specific job types that nonprofits need. Training will focus on the job type of the job seeker’s choice.
