Supporting Job Readiness in the Time of COVID-19

Cost: $50.00 for registrants from MA Community Action Agencies; $60.00 for non-CAA registrants 

Presenter: Martha Oesch, Curriculum Co-Developer/Trainer, Principal at Oesch Consulting

 What does it look like to support people entering or re-entering the labor market in these uncertain and ever-changing times? This interactive session will delve into lessons from MASSCAP's research-based Job Readiness and Employability Development curriculum, with a focus on developing participants' soft skills such as time management, listening skills, and working on a team. We'll focus on the most relevant topics during this evolving time. You'll learn how to integrate effective activities virtually, during one-on-one case management/counseling/coaching sessions, during workshops, or in a classroom.

 As a result of this workshop, you'll learn:

  • Who might benefit from the curriculum
  • How it can be used remotely and in-person
  • Information on targeted job readiness topics most relevant given COVID-19, a slack and evolving labor market, and a focus on addressing structural racism
  • Activities you, your team, or your program can implement within the next month
