The training is provided at no cost to unemployed and underemployed individuals who live in Bell, Clay, Floyd, Harlan, Johnson, Knott, Knox, Laurel, Leslie, Letcher, McCreary, Perry, Pulaski and Whitley counties.

“In today’s business climate, finding a job or changing careers may seem impossible,” said Patti Simpson, training manager for The Center’s Business & Community Training Center. “But there are a few things you can do to help improve your chances of being hired. Use this time to polish your resume, network with others, learn a new skill, and get prepared for your next job interview.”

Instructor Jeremy A. Taylor will be providing some of the basic essential workforce skills to equip, empower, and encourage people to be their best in the workplace and in life.

Some of the topics to be explored during the training include: how to communicate effectively; prepare for a job interview; being a team player and valuable employee; solving problems that arise on the job; professionalism in the workplace; and putting all of these skills together to be the best you can be in the workplace.

“What I appreciate most about this training is the opportunity to help people better understand the importance of developing themselves so they, in turn, can better influence their communities through their work,” Taylor said. “It’s about growing as a person and choosing to do great work.”
