Outreach to Employers
Access staff serve as advocates for clients and employers to ensure that appropriate job matches are made. Staff contact employers on behalf of clients based upon their interests, skills, and preferred work settings. Once job openings are identified, staff help clients understand the job description and requirements, application procedures and interview process, and advocate on their behalf with hiring managers.
Internships help individuals who are new to the workforce or returning after a period of time. The experience provides the opportunity to practice skills obtained in the classroom, build work experience, learn employer expectations, and receive support and mentoring from supervisors. Internships often pave the way for a permanent job.
Youth enrolled in the Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) program, may be eligible to participate in a six week, 120 hour paid internship with additional supportive services to help them succeed.
Access routinely hosts opportunities for employers and applicants from Access programs and the general community to connect. In many cases, employers with immediate job openings accept applications and interview candidates during the event. Employers interested in joining the Job Fair are welcome.
