The American Job Centers here at SCHRA are designed to provide a full range of assistance to job seekers under one roof. Assistance includes access to employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the job market.
Job seekers who take advantage of these services receive a similar experience to what you’d find with a recruitment agency, résumé writer or career coach, but without the cost. Centers focus on placing individuals in quality jobs paying a living wage.
We offer workshops on countless topics from “Using the Internet to Find Work” to “In-demand Jobs” to “Creating your personal brand” and more. Other services include mock interviews, job leads, subsidized training program placement and more. Computers with internet access are also available free of charge for training and job search needs.
If you are interested in building skills or being trained for a new job, the SCHRA American Job Center can connect you with training programs in nearly every field. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to get some or all of the costs of training covered by funding from the Department of Labor. As with job seekers, employer services are offered at no cost. Employers can utilize the centers for recruitment, candidate screening and more.
SCHRA also coordinates with the Tennessee Reconnect Program. Tennessee Reconnect is an initiative to help more adults return to higher education to gain new skills, advance in the workplace, and fulfill lifelong dreams of completing a degree or credential.
