Sometimes additional training can be the barrier that stands between you and your next job. Attend this session to learn if you are eligible for training assistance to develop useful skills for the workplace or to make the skills you already have more marketable. Dislocated workers from Boston based companies and income eligible adults from the city of Boston are especially welcome. This session will provide an overview of the Workforce Investment Act, a federally funded skills training program that pays for job skills training to eligible individuals who meet specific criteria.

Did you know that most jobs in this type of economy are “hidden?” That means networking and using social media are some of the best techniques to uncover opportunities. Join Abby Grant, a former recruiter and career service professional, now at the Boston Business Journal (BBJ), to discuss unique tips, strategies and techniques to invigorate your job search. We will discuss how to “think outside the box” and how being original will help you stand out above other candidates. Each attendee will receive a current issue of the BBJ and the opportunity to win a current copy of BBJ’s “Book of Lists.”
