AimHire Job Placement

Organization: Friendship Place

Being both jobless and homeless is a vicious cycle. You can’t get a job when you don’t have a place to live, and you can’t get a place to live without a job. AimHire offers people a way out. This program utilizes the Employment First Model to empower participants who are experiencing unemployment to find jobs.

We take a personalized approach with each and every participant, helping them assess their skills and interests. Participants in our program are often able to draw from past work experience. Many have been displaced from the workforce by a major life event and simply need tools and services to reconnect and make their job-search process less difficult. We look at the barriers to stable employment, such as incarceration, felonies and substance abuse, and address special accommodations participants need.

Our staff consists of employment specialists supported by a dedicated team of skilled volunteers. Volunteers provide one-to-one mentoring on a wide variety of job readiness topics, provide resume writing assistance, and help participants submit job applications online in the AimHire computer lab. They also help create job opportunities by reaching out to potential employers in the community.
Application: AimHire holds an orientation session every Wednesday at 10 am at the AimHire office, located at 5100 Wisconsin Ave NW, Suite 520 Washington, DC 20016. To attend and become a participant in the program, call us at 202.248.0496 or email us at [email protected]
