Jobseekers

Your Career Starts Here!

Finding Empowerment Through Employment

Upon entering the JobsPlus! program, each jobseeker is assigned a job coach. Job coaches work with the jobseeker, assessing skills and strengths with an eye to identifying the industry and employer that best matches the jobseeker’s abilities. 

Pending acceptance of paid employment, job seekers may participate in the Work Experience Assistance Program, volunteering with one of the 250 partner nonprofit agencies county-wide. This program offers a range of opportunities that provide jobseekers with the experience and confidence needed to find and maintain employment.

Job coaches will also triage opportunities the jobseeker may have to achieve work-readiness or skill up through additional education. They may also refer a job seeker to other community services or opportunities. 

Below are a few of the services we offer our jobseekers:

Our services

Resume Assistance

We’ll work with you to create a resume that puts your skills and abilities on display and show you how to tailor it to the job you’re applying for so you stand out from other candidates.

Job Fairs

JobsPlus! will not only notify you when there are relevant job fairs being held locally, but we’ll also create exclusive opportunities for our jobseekers to interact with employers looking for your skillset.

Resource Room

From job searches and completing online applications to online learning and literacy, our resource room gives you access to everything you need to find and keep employment.

Work Experience

Relevant experience is key to finding the job you want. JobsPlus! maintains partnerships with public and non-profit community partners committed to helping our jobseekers gain the skills and knowledge they need for the job they want.

On-the-Job Training

JobsPlus! incentivizes employers by lowering their risk of hiring someone lacking in skills that could be learned in the first few months of work. 

Work Attire

We understand that new jobs that require a specific dress code, shoe type, or tool(s) can be a significant barrier to overcome. We are able to assist jobseekers with the necessary items to get started at their new job!

Referrals

Our job coaches will help you find local programs and services that will help meet your needs and remove barriers to employment. We refer clients to educational opportunities, medical services, substance rehabilitation, criminal justice, housing and more.

Transportation

Getting to and from work makes the difference between having a job and not having a job. JobsPlus! job coaches are able to help you navigate transportation issues to ensure you can maintain employment.

Child Care

Childcare is one of the biggest obstacles to getting to work. At JobsPlus! we will help you attain adequate childcare in order to maintain peace of mind and gainful employment.

What people say?

JobsPlus! opened a lot of doors by allowing me to come to Onondaga Community College and then having them work hand-in-hand means that I can focus on my grade point average…or gaining skills that are required for employment.

JobsPlus! takes extra steps so that I have one less thing to worry about. When my coach would reach it would save me so much stress and mental bandwidth. I greatly appreciate the way my coach would work with me and help me in every way so that I could succeed.
