American Express partnered with Met Council and held a Job Readiness Workshop. The 26 volunteers worked with clients to sharpen their professional networking skills and to increase their confidence at job interviews.
Clients left the workshop with a greater understanding on how to incorporate best practices to their professional endeavors.
One client commented that the interviews “will help me feel more confident towards the interview process.”
This career clinic was part of Met Council’s Job Readiness Workshops and Counseling, which are designed to empower our clients to get and keep the jobs they want, allowing them to be self sufficient. Finding stable employment is one of the ways Met Council assists clients in reaching economic independence and helps individuals find lasting solutions to poverty.
