CareerWork$ Ready is a free, online job readiness training created in response to the need to help job seekers reenter the workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic health crisis.

CareerWork$ Ready is designed to help job seekers access critical job opportunities currently available and to prepare for the jobs that will return during the economic recovery. The program consists of a 3-week course offered completely on-line using Zoom and Google Classroom, focused on job readiness skills, 30-second commercials, revamping resumes, networking, interviewing, communication skills, online applications, Microsoft Office skills, and soft skills needed to land a job.

CareerWork$ Ready runs four days/week for 2 hours a day, with homework assignments and separately scheduled career planning and navigation meetings. Students need to have a computer to access the class and the YWCA has been able to provide low cost laptops to those who need them, by leveraging a separate grant.

CareerWork$ Ready is designed for any industry and also includes one-on-one career coaching and navigation with experienced career navigators, breakout rooms on various career development topics, and weekly Zoom “office hours” with instructors and career navigators. CareerWork$ Ready includes a monthly job fair with multiple employers in a wide range of industries (health care, finance, manufacturing, retail, tech etc.) which is available to all current and previous program graduates.
