During a job interview, how prepared are you? Recently, President Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at better training programs to meet the demands of industries, including skilled trades.
The Adams County Work Readiness Team says finding a job begins with basic skills that some people lack. Team co-leader Angela Caldwell tells WGEM basic skills can include communication and dressing appropriately to job pick up an application and interviews.
The work readiness team offers a free certification to citizens wanting to lean how to prepare for finding a job. It’s a program is to give candidates the best possible chance of finding a job.
The program began around four years ago after area employers were concerned with candidates lacking soft skills. It’s a ‘work at your own pace’ for completion, according to Caldwell.
More than 30 area companies have endorsed the essential work skills learned in the certification program.
