Employment Services

Employment Services provides referrals and job readiness programs that assist immigrants from Spanish-speaking countries as they seek employment.

About the Program

Steady work is a key building block to stability in the home. When our neighbors face obstacles in finding a job, we are here to help. Our employment referrals and job readiness training programs assist men and women from Hispanic countries as they attempt to get a job. Participants have the opportunity to learn new skills and trades and have access to resources to complete a job search with a successful hire.

Services

With offices in D.C. and Gaithersburg, we help match potential employees with employers. 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 are available on topics including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, resume writing, local job market research, career counseling, job complaints and Internet applications.

Programs are open to D.C., Maryland and Virginia residents ages 18 and older.
