Jewish Family Services Career & Employment Services clients can brush up on their computer skills thanks to a $2,500 grant from State Farm.

Career & Employment Services (CES) provides candidates with comprehensive job readiness training through programs that teach individuals how to develop a personal brand, how to create a resume that packs a punch, as well as how to improve interviewing skills.

“A computer trained and savvy employee is essential in today’s workforce” said Jose Soto, State Farm Public Affairs Specialist. “We are proud to provide a grant to the Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services to help support their career and employment training program.”

Based upon requests, CES recently added two fee for service programs, Resume Writing Service and LinkedIn Profile Service.  These programs provide for a one-one consultation with a career strategist who will construct a professionally written resume or profile. The goal of CES is to transform job candidates into successful employees. CES works closely with candidates during each step of the process to help them on their path to self-sufficiency.
