Job Search Assistance

Job Search Assistance

At JVS, we can help you with the skills and resources you need to find the right job.  For some, the workshops and classes in our calendar can help you brush up the skills you need to get back to work.  Others, particularly if you've been laid off, might benefit from working with one of our expert Employment Specialists

Your work with an Employment Specialist will include:
  • Identifying your goals, work-related skill sets, interests and work environment preferences
  • Discussing updated information on the Bay Area Labor Market and its trends.
  • Identifying any barriers and challenges to employment that you may have, and developing strategies and referrals to overcome them.
  • Creating strategies for developing job leads and employer contacts.
  • Building your skills and strategies for an effective job search, including how to adjust resumes, write customized cover letters and network with employers.
  • Coaching on how to articulate and market your skills and work experience.
  • Advising on how to adjust to a new job and successfully advance in it.
For more information, please call our main number at (415) 391-3600 and ask to set up an intake appointment. JVS also hosts general orientations every Wednesday 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM.  See our calendar for more details, or to sign up for a workshop.
