Houston Job Search Training Program Offers FREE Professional Help to Refugees, Homeless, Community Groups

Job Search 101 offers networking opportunities, programs, training and a systematic approach to job search, designed and presented by professional career coaches at no charge

PRLog - Apr. 1, 2014 - HOUSTON -- Houston’s premier job search program, Job Search 101 (JS 101), founded in 2012 during the highest rate in Houston unemployment since 1983, facilitates workshops, seminars, and job search teams to hundreds of Houstonians through their central location at Leisure Learning Unlimited in Greenway Plaza Area, and through refugee and community groups around the city. JS101's mission, based on the vision of founder, Ed Hubbard of TFI Industries, is to offer quality and effective job search training and advice from professional career coaches at no charge. Margery H., one of the program graduates, says, "If what you have been doing has not worked or you feel like you are drowning and are tired of treading water, catch your breath and get aboard the lifeboat that is Job Search 101."

The Houston Chronicle reports that Patrick Jankowski, vice president of research for the Greater Houston Partnership, believes that the Houston area will create 69,800 new jobs next year, a 2.5 percent year-over-year growth rate. Job Search 101 helps Houston residents, at no charge, to write a professional resume, to prepare for the interview process, and to have the support needed for the journey.

Professional career coaches with years of hands-on experience in HR, recruiting, career development, and communications facilitate all the JS 101 events and programs. The JS 101 coaches teach in a variety of settings from private shelters such as Dress for Success and YMCA International Services to public venues such as churches and community centers.

JS 101 offers training and programs for every type and level of Job Seeker. “It is easy to get depressed or feel out of the loop in today’s digital application process. So often job seekers just need the right lead, or connection to get them started,” says Ed Hubbard, founder of JS 101. JS 101 bridges the digital divide by empowering job seekers with effective tools to market themselves and eventually land their next job.
