Prepare for the career you want.
Employers in every industry sector are looking for skilled workers to help them compete in the global economy. If you need training to secure a stable job with good wages, apply for a scholarship at your local job center. Scholarships can be used for either classroom training or on-the-job training. Either way, you will be more prepared for the career you want.
Golden Sierra Job Training Agency has been so wonderful. My grandson received so much help: he was able to study for his GED, and get a part-time job with an employer who would work with is less-than-perfect background. He became a changed person. He now would like to attend college.
The staff at Auburn Connections is probably made up of the best people you will find anywhere. They were very supportive of me and my job search efforts.
After two years of searching, many interviews, many disappointments and living through different emotions, I found the perfect job. I could not have done it without the Auburn Connections staff and the resources that they provided.
First, without the training you are providing I do not believe they would have offered me the PM position. Mr. G [the owner] has held these same certifications for several years, so the value they bring to the table is immense. He can have confidence that he and I will have the same frame of reference for managing projects, and that I will be able to implement his vision accurately and effectively. Thanks to you, I got a promotion before I was even hired. Second, in my darkest hours, you were there to light a way forward and give me a reason to hope. You have no idea how much your support, understanding, and encouragement has altered the trajectory of my life. Despite my vocabulary and communication skills, I lack the ability to express how profoundly grateful I am. I want you to take a moment, sit back, and feel really good about yourself. I insist. You are heroes. You saved a life.
I am a single mom on unemployment. Jan’s workshops gave me the confidence to succeed in my interview.
Thanks to Golden Sierra for making it possible for us to have hopes and dreams again. You have helped turn hopelessness to hopefulness! I certainly hope that Golden Sierra continues to be there for a long time so that they can continue helping others who have lost their jobs due to the economy.
The results of working with the staff at the Auburn Connections Center is that I am much more focused and confident. I have a network, a plan, and the resources I need to take this personal campaign to a successful conclusion. This a great place to focus, get advice and help.
After being downsized I found it extremely difficult to get interviews for a new job. Golden Sierra provided me with programs that helped me choose a [career] direction. Golden Sierra provided the funding necessary to follow this dream to its conclusion.
I found out what I liked to do and what kind of work I should do. Without the Golden Sierra office in Auburn offering all the How-to-Sessions and the great staff there, I feel that I would still be looking for work. Thank you for everything and I wish the best of luck to the Golden Sierra office in Auburn.
Despite my health issues (which I openly disclosed to the employer) I worked very hard and was offered regular work after my ‘internship’ ended!
