Skills Required: WorkFaith Birmingham is a faith-based ministry that seeks to help address the complicated life issues of adults in transition by empowering them with the skills, support, values, avenues, and life perspectives they need to gain and maintain employment, and become productive contributors to their families, churches, and communities.
Our two-week workshop has been used successfully with over 1,000 adults in Birmingham. Every participant learns how to correctly fill out applications, create a resume based on their work history and their skills and abilities, speak honestly and ethically about their past, develop a network of support for their job search, identify potential employers, research potential employers, and much more. Every participant participates in mock interviews and observes other mock interviews so they can be prepared with confidence when they go to job interviews.
Classroom Assistant Role
The Classroom Assistant plays a vital role as a coach in the classroom, working closely in concert with the Instructor. Currently our workshops are conducted via Zoom, but in-person workshops are anticipated in the future.
