(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.
