The ARK Employment Services Department provides realistic hope for our clients to have a productive job search experience and secure financial independence with a position that is a good fit for them.
Develop Goals, Determine a Direction
Our job professionals partner with each client. They talk through employment history and life events that may have effected job choices and performance. ARK job coaches strongly believe in helping find the right job fit for our clients, and are dedicated to helping identify realistic goals. They take pride in their ability to work with each client individually to develop a customized plan.
Counseling and Coaching
Clients are taken through rigorous job readiness training to determine strengths, weaknesses and direction. This process allows our clients to uncover skills they might not have realized and to experience a new-found pride in what’s possible.
Tailored Cover letters, Impactful Resumes
Once our clients have a direction, and have become aware of what they bring to a job, the development of a resume begins. The ARK Employment Department recognizes that resume development requires a professional who knows how to extract the necessary information to craft this important marketing tool. Our professional resume writer creates an impressive and strong resume, allowing the client to see their potential.
Networking and Interviewing Insights
Once tactical tools are in place, the focus turns to creating a networking strategy and intensive interviewing coaching. Learning how to present themselves professionally and develop relationships with other professionals, our clients learn the impact networking can have. The Job Coaches teach each client how to approach, talk and follow-up on any potential leads and/or referrals. Our interviewing program prepares the client using role playing and filming of mock interviews.
Job Placement and On-going Support
Once the client is job ready, they develop a job search plan. ARK job advisors cultivate relationships with a wide variety of employers and identify qualified candidates, fitting the needs of our partner businesses and organizations. This is highly beneficial for both the client and the business. The client/business relationship does not end after the placement process. ARK professionals are available to both the client and the employer to offer assistance, answer questions, and provide additional coaching to enhance opportunities for long term success.
