Job Readiness Program

Since March 2012, CARC has been a certified Training Provider approved by the State of New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. With grant funds provided by the Monmouth County Division of Workforce Development, CARC has since implemented the Job Readiness with Basic Computer Skills program. The training prepares TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and GA (General Assistance) recipients to obtain gainful employment by developing career planning and workplace readiness skills.

Participants develop conflict resolution and cognitive skills, oral communications and time management skills. Emphasis is placed on professional dress and demeanor, interviewing skills, work ethic as well as interpersonal and teamwork skills. Participants identify their personal qualities, strengths and weaknesses in order to develop a career assessment. At the conclusion of the 4-week program, participants will have created an effective resume and refined interviewing skills.
