Go With The FLOW
Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation (AAWDC) is starting 2017 with a new and exciting initiative for eligible county residents ages 18-24 who are currently not in school.
At no cost, FLOW (First Level of Work) offers career exploration, essential workplace skills training, job readiness assessments and consultation, occupational training and job placement assistance. After attending an information session, prospective participants will sign up for one of three career exploration sessions offered through late February to identify their place in the workforce and career goals, and determine a plan to achieve their career goals. The FLOW initiative will run March through May 2017 and will focus on careers in health care and information technology.
· Enjoy career exploration by identifying personal interests and strengths through assessments, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
· Attend a week-long training on essential workplace skills and money management
· Develop self-marketing tools through job readiness consultation (resume preparation, interviewing techniques, etc.)
· Meet local industry leaders who will share insights on working in the health care and information technology industries
· Spend a day at Fort Meade, meet with industry officials and get a behind-the-scenes look at the Kimbrough Ambulatory Care Center and the National Cryptologic Museum
· Be enrolled, if all qualifications are met, in occupational training, including certified medical administrative assistant (CMAA), certified nursing assistant/geriatric nursing assistant (CNA/GNA), computer user support technician/help desk technician. All trainings result in at least one nationally recognized certification.
· Receive job placement assistance.
Information sessions will be held throughout the county. They are all on public transportation lines and last about one hour. A career coach will be on hand to answer questions.
