ICS Workforce Development Centers are for everyone! We help job-seekers in early, middle, and late career stages. We coach clients of all education and skill levels, looking for part time or full time work. Our staff and volunteers assist with special circumstances like long gaps in employment and periods of incarceration.
Here are some success stories from past clients.
Francine came in to the Workforce Development Center looking for employment that was more in line with her recently-completed Master’s Degree. Her work experience was in administrative assistant and customer service positions. ICS staff and volunteers assisted her in applying for a Child Clinician position that puts her Master’s Degree to great use. She was hired full time with benefits and a starting salary she is pleased with.
Francine wrote this in a thank-you note she sent to ICS: “I wish all employment seekers could experience as I did, the welcoming hope and blessings of an ICS Workforce Development employment assistance experience.”
“I received a huge assist in my job hunting campaign from ICS. I faced major obstacles to gaining employment. The Workforce Development Center staff generously shared their expertise at every step. My new part time job is a great fit for my needs.” -Keith
“I am grateful for all the support I’ve been given. Thank you for helping me with my resume. I appreciate ICS so much! Graduating college and starting my new career is a weight off my shoulders.” -Ashley
