Some spots open for ProMatch career services this Weds. 6/25 and Weds. 7/2

19 06 2014

Hello Everyone,

I’ve received rave reviews from KIT List members about ProMatch, a free service from the California EDD, that has many features to help professionals with career growth.

ProMatch has some openings for its orientations this Wednesday and next, 6/25 and 7/2.

Please show up on time since it’s a first-come, first-served basis.

ProMatch is impressive and many of our KIT List members vouch for how the program focuses professionals on getting back into great jobs.

ProMatch is offered at no charge — it is part of America’s Job Center of California collaboration between the state’s EDD Experience Unlimited program and the NOVA Workforce Investment Board.

I encourage you to attend the Wednesday orientation and benefit from ProMatch’s excellent array of tools, workshops, success teams, professional career coaches and speakers to help you conduct a smarter job search.

Warmly,

Sue

Hello Everyone,

There are two highly effective organizations that provide job search and career management resources — free of charge!

These two programs are funded by your tax dollars and they are both focused on getting professionals back to work.

ProMatch

If you are making a career move, there has never been a better time to join the ranks of a truly amazing career center in Sunnyvale called ProMatch.

ProMatch is a free service sponsored by the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the NOVA Workforce Investment Board.

Many KIT List community members have alerted us to the value and strength of this remarkable program which helps professionals to:

– Learn how to use LinkedIn and other social media tools better
– Discover how to access the “hidden job market”
– Hone your interview and negotiation skills
– Strengthen and grow your professional network

The first step is to attend an orientation which offered every Wednesday from 8:15 AM until noon at the CONNECT Job Seeker Center. Some spaces are available on 8/7 and on 8/14.

Note: Be sure to arrive on time since late arrivals will need to reschedule. There are no advanced sign-ups for this workshop – just come at 8:15 AM.

East Bay Works

Located in Concord, they offer free services including job coaching and workshops for professionals in the East Bay and Tri-Valley area.

Experience Unlimited volunteers lead their own workshops on site. Plus, they have the largest local contingent of EDD staff in the Tri-Valley area located in their office.

Sign up for their one-hour Career Services Overview on the first and third Wed of every month. There you will find out everything that East Bay Works offers professionals — all free of charge.

The next events are 8/7 and 8/21 at 1:30 PM (arrive at 1:00 PM if you are not registered).

Also, they offer online workshops on job search preparation, LinkedIn vocational assessments, other distance learning for soft skills at:

IMPORTANT:
I get many requests for KIT List job seekers outside of the Silicon Valley who want to know if there are similar services in their area.

Please share in the Comments section of this blog any other organizations that provide free career services, especially anything in Marin, Monterrey, Los Angeles, etc.

Thanks, everyone!
