#10 HELP ME MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR 1,000 LOWER INCOME JOB SEEKERS.

Posted May 15 2018, 4:34 pm

MY JOB SEARCH and INTERVIEWING TRAINING SESSIONS WILL GREATLY IMPROVE THEIR SKILLS RESULTING IN MEANINGFUL EMPLOYMENT, IN HALF THE TIME, COMPARED TO THE OTHER CHOICES THEY HAVE.

The #1 reason job seekers aren’t offered a job isn’t because they lack the skills or qualifications…it’s because how poorly they interview. I want to and can change that.

In the Greater Cincinnati area there over 100,000 unemployed people. Many of them are veterans, blue collar workers whose company has gone out of business or experiencing a major downsizing, people residing in homeless shelters, citizens living in poverty who desire to better themselves and many other people from all walks of life.

Yes, there is an abundance of help, in Cincinnati, for all of these people. However, many of the companies/businesses that offer job search help charge a fee which locks out those who can’t afford it. There are also many state and local government sponsored social service agencies that offer help and their services are free. However, the content and quality of information they offer is very basic and of little help to the job seeker.

I’ve spent two years researching this. I’ve been an observer at their training sessions. I’ve interviewed many job seekers who have used a job search company, a social service agency, a job search networking group, outplacement or a college career center and this is what I’ve heard.

“It was a waste of my time.”

 “They taught me just the basics and it wasn’t enough to make me stand out in my interview.”

“I didn’t learn anything new.”

“When I completed the training my confidence level and self-esteem were as low as when I began.”

WHY aren’t job seekers being given the quality help they need in order to stand out in their interviews?

  • Because they were accepted only for who they are and not what they are capable of becoming.
  • Because they were looked at as a number to fill a quota and not as a person who desperately needs help.
  • Because the people doing the training have never been in their shoes; they’ve never personally experienced the stress, uncertainty, lower self- esteem and embarrassment from losing their job and being unemployed.

I have been in their shoes. I know how they feel and I know how to overcome their challenges and anxieties.

My goal, for the next twelve months is to train 1,000 lower income Greater Cincinnati area job seekers by conducting two hour group job search, interview and leadership training sessions and to do this for FREE!

My focus will be on veterans, residents of shelters, returning citizens (incarcerated people returning to society) and job seekers, in general, who can’t afford to pay for the job search and interview skill training they need.

In order for me to accomplish this I need just one or two companies/businesses or individuals/families to underwrite this worthwhile initiative. I seek compassionate people who have a social conscious and view this as an opportunity to help make life better for 1,000 deserving job seekers who are not receiving the quality help they need to gain employment quickly, at a better starting wage and one that they are excited about.

An additional benefit, is the media exposure, if desired, you will be receiving. I have recently been featured on two Fox morning television shows and have had feature articles in two local newspapers. This type of exposure will continue.

I would, very much, welcome the opportunity of personally meeting with you.
