FINDING MORE THAN A CAREER AT TE

Each year, TE connects over 500 people to careers. Many of the people we serve start their career pathway with our Career Readiness workshops where participants learn softskills needed for workplace success, develop their personal career map, prepare their resumes, learn new skills for a successful interviews, and address legal issues that have become barriers to employment. 

In addition to gaining skills and confidence,  participants develop comradery and friendship in our workshops. Over the next few months, TE will be following a group of participants who graduated from our program late last year on their career pathways. 

Read what graduates have to say about their experience at TE in their WOW Letters, presented at our Reentry Step Up Graduation Ceremonies.
