Career Information Specialist
Career Information Specialist (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA – August 12, 2015
A typical day at work was assisting the general public in job search assistance and career decisions through a process of company placed orientation and career counselling. I learned to expedite as many resources available to change the customer's circumstance of unemployment through company lay-off, RIF (Reduction-in-Force), and termination. Through the career center I provided job search assistance, information for federally funded education/training programs, career workshops and job fairs. Management was continually brainstorming by way of (bi-weekly) meetings to assist customers. The most difficult part of the job was the look on someone's face when they interviewed and were not selected. The most enjoyable part of the job was providing employment contacts and informing customers of their qualifications to receive education grants offered through the federal government.
Providing employment contacts.
Listening to customers who were financially stagnant, due to loss of employment.
