Career Outreach

Revive Outreach's focus area is committed to connecting adults with limited or no education beyond high school to career pathways that allow for economic mobility and a family-sustaining wage. Traditional higher education has struggled to meet the needs of some adults, so there is a growing demand for a workforce with some post secondary education. 

 

Revive Outreach, Inc. career readiness program will work closely with a group of people to help them find, apply, and secure jobs that are specific to them. Our Revive Outreach team will provide advise, tools and resources for individuals to learn to research work opportunities, sufficiently apply and submit compelling applications, resumes and cover letters for job placement. They will also establish a professional social media presence, and practice interview and networking skills as well as learn how to negotiate salary and make important work connections all of which will help them successfully obtain employment opportunities.

Revive Outreach career readiness program will also provide participants with assistance in securing a career opportunity through Revive Janitorial.
