Taking steps to beginning a new career can be challenging, especially when deciding on where to get an education to help prepare for it. Sometimes you aren’t sure of who to reach out to when you need help. Working with an organization that has an extensive network of partners can benefit you by connecting you with the right people who can expand your career possibilities. Not only do you want to receive the best training, but you also want to be allied with the best possible resources to get you into a career that’s made for you once you finish the program.
Many employers are seeking candidates that have both the technical competencies to complete the job as well as the soft skills needed to communicate and engage coworkers and customers. The Jobs Partnership helps build the foundation for better career possibilities by providing such a large scale of networking opportunities.
The Benefits of an Expansive Network
Networking is critical in helping you find a job as well as growing your career. According to LinkedIn, the largest professional networking site available today, 80 percent of professionals acknowledge networking as an important factor to career success; with 70 percent of people in 2016 who were able to get hired at a company because they knew someone who had a connection.
The Jobs Partnership understands the importance of networking, giving students access to a network of more than 200+ employers, in addition to working with churches, volunteers, and community organizations throughout Central Florida who help guide and encourage students throughout their LifeWorks training course and beyond.
As a LifeWorks student, you will be able to attend exclusive events such as The Jobs Partnership Career Fair where you get to meet and interview with employer partners, the Resource Fair with educational and community resources, and more. You will also have access to the Orlando Jobs Connection website and upon completion of the LifeWorks Training Program, will be personally guided through the Career Pathways process to help determine your next career step.

When interacting with employers, students have the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they receive from The Jobs Partnership LifeWorks course to help them with their career search.
