A training series for Hispanic job seekers kicks off this Saturday, according to this press release:
Nashville, TN - Learning the ropes of how to apply for a job, and get
hired, is a matter "that matters" worldwide. This will be the first
topic addressed by HispanEduca during its kick-off series of four
sessions that will be launched on Saturday, June 11, 2005, from 11:00 am
to 12:30 pm, at Aurora Bakery, 3725 Nolensville Road, Nashville, TN
The first session (on June 11) is free and will include an orientation
as well as a description of the program. The fee for the following three
sessions, to take place the following three Saturdays (June 18, 25 &
July 2), will be of $5 per person per Saturday, including materials.
English managed and owned businesses and organizations are in dire need
of Hispanic bilingual employees that have specific skills besides
language. Their structure allows them to get so far, but not close
enough to their target candidates. Hispanics with a GED or High School
diploma, who are bilingual and have some work experience, need a basic
"adaptation" training on how to apply for a job in the US and get hired.
HispanEduca's goal is to build this bridge and help pave the way for
both employers and job hunters to connect and maximize their resources
This program is supported by Aurora Bakery, ERA Pacesetters, Metro Human
Relations Commission and St. Thomas Health Services.
