This intensive 150 hour course (10 weeks/15.5 hour per week) is designed for immigrants with low to intermediate English language skills that are searching for their first job in the US. Students in ESOL levels 3 and 4 will learn how to search for a job, and expand their English skills through contextualized English for the workplace with a focus on U.S. workplace culture and learn financial literacy skills. Area employers are actively engaged in the program, visiting the classroom to share information about their companies, providing mock interview practice as well as hiring students. Graduates of the program receive a certificate detailing their competency achieved for twelve employability skill standards and their attendance hours. They also receive one-on-one job search support from their teachers and job developers from participating service agencies.
