|SERVICES & PROGRAMS||UPCOMING EVENTS||WAYS TO VOLUNTEER||MAM JOBS NETWORK|
We are NOT an employment agency and we do not maintain a database of current job openings. Instead, we teach our clients how to find job openings and how to present themselves to maximize their chances of being hired.
MAM’s Employment Services program assists clients in overcoming obstacles to obtaining and keeping meaningful jobs. We stand willing to assist anyone who can demonstrate legal work status in the US. We teach basic computer literacy, provide one-on-one coaching on job-finding and job-maintenance skills, and offer a higher level multi-week Certification Program to those who meet certain guidelines.
While some staff and volunteers are bi-lingual, we believe that clients must be able to function in an English language environment to successfully compete for most jobs. Accordingly, all MAM Employment Services are provided in English. For those who lack sufficient English language skills, we refer them to an ESL program also conducted here at MAM.
- Basic Computer Literacy: Our staff and volunteers assess client ability to use a personal computer for job-finding purposes, and help clients to improve where needed. Keyboarding, emailing, using the internet, online job application and the use of MS Word to create a resume are taught on a one-on-one basis, primarily by volunteers with significant PC expertise.
- Job Coaching: Our staff and volunteers assist clients in editing and polishing resumes, devising a job search strategy, and practicing interview skills. We coach clients on a variety of job seeking and life skills and provide motivational assistance where possible. Volunteers and staff maintain “Office Hours” for client appointments and provide most of this training on a one-on-one basis.
- Certification Program: Workshops are conducted Mondays through Thursdays at 4 p.m. on a variety of topics aimed at finding and retaining good jobs. Clients who meet the requirements of the program (proficiency in English at least ESL Level 3, high school diploma or enrollment in a GED program, good basic computer skills, pass criminal background check and drug test) and attend all workshops will be awarded a Certificate of Completion and will be paired with a mentor to assist them over a six month period. Clients also take the Career Readiness Certificate examination, a test of workplace skills that is recognized as a good predictor of job success.
- Other Services: We provide clients access to the Internet and e-mail through our on-site computer lab, and provide copying, printing, faxing and scanning services relating to clients’ job searches. When needed and appropriate, we provide professional clothing, work boots and other items, and have limited funding for job-related transportation and training assistance.
