Employment services are at the core of Urban Upbound’s Theory of Change. Providing job seekers with employment tools is one of the first steps in the employment process. Clients are matched with a Career Counselor to provide one-on-one counseling and to create a personalized employment plan. We prepare clients for every interaction with potential employers, with a particular focus on the interview process. At our on-site computer lab, we assist clients with creating and polishing their resumes, writing cover letters, completing job applications, performing mock interviews, and helping them search for jobs. In addition, our job placement services match clients with employers that offer career ladders and opportunities for upward mobility.
