Employment is vital to a family’s self-sufficiency and stability. Without a job, parents cannot provide the necessary food and safe shelter children require. At Families Forward our primary goal is to support families so that their children will regain security and stability.

Families Forward’s innovative Career Coaching program equips clients with current, lifelong job search skills, and empowers them with the confidence they need for achieving and maintaining workplace productivity. Career Workshops are available for any individual in need of assistance in the job search process.

See below for the list of upcoming workshops. Please contact 949-552-2727 to be placed on our interest list. Please note that childcare will not be provided during these workshops.

Located at: 8 Thomas (at the corner of Muirlands and Thomas), Irvine, CA 92618

Families Forward Job Launch Workshops begins a brand new six week series on Wednesdays, beginning Wednesday, April 1st, 2015, at our program center at 8 Thomas in Irvine!

These six workshops can be taken as stand-alone sessions or as a complete series. They are designed to update you or your client with the latest strategies for maneuvering the search maze – from creating a powerful, targeted resume and answering tough questions, to learning how to overcome age issues and negotiate salary.

The workshops, including all materials, are free and open to anyone of any age from any community. All that is necessary is a fairly good grasp of English. Please call Families Forward at (949) 552-2727 to sign up.

New! Sole Survivor

This interactive employment game puts YOU in the employer’s seat where you have the power to give thumbs up or down to eight phantom candidates searching for work in your “company.” What do you learn from it? Clients tell us they leave with two things: a huge sense of relief that not getting the offer is NOT a personal failure, and new awareness of the importance of the “little things” in the search.

Cost is FREE! Sign-up is required. To sign up, please call (949) 552-2727.

Date/Time: Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 9:45 AM – 12 Noon
