It is not uncommon to find yourself on the hunt for steady employment. Our team realizes when much of a clients time has been spent on finding help, beginning their recovery, building relationships and bettering their own personal self, employment sinks to the bottom of the to do list and many patients find themselves unemployed and struggling to pay for everyday needs, let alone treatment. Because of this trend we see with patients beginning their recovery, we have provided personalized resume and interviewing courses at BrookStone Medical Center.
Along with all other counseling and class options, our Resume and Interview courses are free of charge. These courses are all covered under the daily treatment fee patients pay for medication each day. Once a patient is admitted into the program, they have the option to receive over fifteen different counseling and life skills course options.
Our Resume and Interviewing course is broken into three different sessions. Patients are responsible for scheduling these appointments by contacting the front desk during dosing hours. The courses are broken up to discuss three main points:
1. How to build a Resume
2. How to confidently interview and
3. Action Plan.
The first course will involve creating a personalized resume one on one with a team member. The team member will help the client build a professional resume that spotlights clients talents, abilities and best traits. The second portion, the interview section, will help patients build confidence and understand what employers look for when interviewing a new hire. The goal of this session is to help clients feel presentable, confident and become comfortable sharing their talents and abilities with future employers. The last section of the course will be the action plan. The team member and the client will create a well formed list of job opportunities in the area that fit the patients abilities and are currently hiring. Once the action plan is set in place, the client will begin taking in resumes to businesses listed on the action plan.
The goal of the Resume and Interviewing class is to have a support system and continual help for finding employment in the area. Job hunting does not have to be such a strenuous task! If you are struggling with unemployment, contact a team member today to begin your Resume and Interviewing course.
