People seeking employment often come to feel very much alone, but you’re not. Whether you’re a high school graduate pursuing your first job, a veteran re-integrating to civilian life, or a working adult who wants to improve their career, or whose industry is forcing them to, you have a Career Team waiting to help you every step of the way.
Plan. Prepare. Pursue. That’s the formula for success when seeking new employment. There are many reasons you may find yourself looking for new employment.
- You may be graduating or have just graduated from high school. The skyrocketing cost of college education may have you looking for a better, less costly path to a great career.
- You may be working in a dead-end job and feel the need to shift to a better opportunity. Or your industry may have been disrupted by new developments and suddenly find yourself unable to support your family without making a change.
- You may be a parent whose children have become self-sufficient and you feel the need to return to the working world.
- You may be a veteran returning from military service with acquired skills, but no clarity as to where to best apply them.
Your First Concern – Paying for Training
While you may think figuring out what kind of career you want to pursue is the first step in your process, most people first worry about how they’re going to find the money to afford the training they’ll need.
There are many potential answers to this concern, and they all depend upon your history and circumstances. Veterans re-entering the workforce have many benefits available to them, as do many other groups of people. This is the first thing a New Horizons Career Consultant helps you with; finding those benefit programs that you qualify for and helping you apply for them.
They can also share with you their experience with other people like you who have conducted similar searches. Ultimately, you’ll come out with a clear direction to proceed in.
