  • It is not easy to keep up your motivation when searching for a job. Learning new skills you can include in your resume can make all the difference.

    Want to find a job and escape from the benefits cycle? Join the Job Corps and train yourself out of unemployment. What is a Job Corp you may ask. The Job Corps is a nationwide program which is designed to train young men and women to join the workforce.

    The Job Corps program provides participants with the training, the social skills, the encouragement and the experience they need to make a success out of their search for employment. Many people that can work never, or rarely, get a job because there is little financial motivation to do so. Let’s face it, if you can get the same amount of money –or only a little less– without having to work, it might be difficult, depending on your personality, to muster up the determination to get out of unemployment. However, if you are trained to perform a specialized service, or learn a new trade, this can be just what you need to help you get started or find a better paying job. If you are unemployed and live in Pennsylvania, visit the Job Corps office nearer to you and see what they have to offer.

    Job Corps combines classroom and practical lessons to help unemployed workers learn skills that are transferable to the real world. If you are willing to provide the enthusiasm and energy, this program can provide the assets you need to succeed.
