Job Training

In today’s fast-moving economy, more and more people completely change what they do several times during their working career. More and more people find themselves out of work despite their training, experience and best efforts

A husband and wife both worked and they lived modestly. About two years ago the wife was laid off. Shortly thereafter the husband’s hours were cut at the office and he became a part-time employee. Then last year he was laid off. Meanwhile expenses kept climbing.

Some find themselves unemployed for the first time. Intelligent and experienced in a field in which they cannot find a job, they discover that they are unable to land that next all important position because they lack even the necessary and most basic computer and business skills. The income that could make a big difference in their family is frustratingly beyond reach.

Enter Partners in Parnosoh.

An orthodontist teamed up with a website optimizer and a few friends to create adult education classes where basic business and computer skills are taught. Clearly they had concerns since they have never done anything like this before. However, their efforts have blossomed and today there is a waiting list of people eager to enter these nightly that run for several months so that they can get the skills that will make a difference in their lives.
