Job Seekers

Have a Productive Job Search

The Ark's Employment Professionals can help you move forward in the job search and process.

The Ark Employment Services Division 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.

We Can Help:

Our employment professionals partner with each client. We talk through employment history and life events that may have effected job choices and performance. We strongly believe in helping find the right job fit for our clients and are dedicated to helping identify realistic goals. We take pride in working with each client individually to develop a customized plan.

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.

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 Division 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.

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. Employment professionals 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.

Once the client is job ready, they develop a job search plan. Employment professionals 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.
