Employment Referrals and Job Readiness Training Programs

Organization: Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington

Our Employment Referrals and Job Readiness Training Programs in DC and MD help compile weekly employment opportunities for job seekers, particularly Latino immigrants, and offer regular workshops to prepare job seekers for success in their career. These include learning new trades and providing the resources to complete a job search with a successful hire.

We help match employers with potential employees. Job opportunities are compiled and distributed each week.

We also offer regular workshops on “Job Readiness” and “Life Skills” to help job seekers improve their employment potential. Additional workshops and assistance is available on topics including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, resume writing, local job market research, career counseling, job complaints and Internet applications.
Application: The programs are open to all D.C., Maryland and Virginia residents age 18 and older.
