(Middletown, CT) Rick Morin, Chairman of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce announced that the Middlesex Chamber is providing assistance to job seekers in the Middletown community seeking information on resume preparation, job interview coaching, and local hiring opportunities through the Middletown Worker Preparation Program.
The Middletown Worker Preparation Program has been a valuable asset to the Middletown community since 1991. The primary mission of the program is to help unemployed and displaced workers in the City of Middletown find employment.
The Middlesex Chamber Worker Preparation Team will recruit job seeking clients who fit into the guidelines set by the Community Development Block Grant, the City of Middletown Common Council, and the Citizens Advisory Committee. Chamber staff will assess the client’s readiness for employment, assist in the development of a presentable resume, and conduct follow-up interviews to gauge the client’s progress. Client meetings will take place at the centrally-located Chamber of Commerce building at 393 Main St. Middletown, and the job search will occur throughout Middlesex County with an emphasis on Middletown.
“The Middletown Worker Preparation Program is an important bridge between job seekers and employers. At the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce we have strong connections with the business community and we work with clients to improve on their professional development and connect them to industry sectors that meet their skill sets. This program is beneficial for both employers and job seekers,” said program coordinator Lorenzo Marshall.
The program’s goal is to put the people of Middletown in the best possible position to secure employment and earn wages that will allow them to provide for their family and contribute to the fabric of the Middletown community. As a business organization, the chamber has strong links to a wide range of employers in Middletown and the Greater-Middletown area. One of the chamber’s main functions is to help our members as they seek to hire quality employees.
Before beginning the job search, chamber staff assist clients in preparing for job interviews, while providing job coaching and employment retention training. Chamber staff maintains consistent contact with both clients and employers to foster the best possible environment for not only placement into employment, but long-term security in the job.
The Middletown Worker Preparation Program is a critical program that continues to be an asset to job seekers and employers.
