The One Stop Career Center in Jersey City provides TANF clients enrolled in the Paul and Phyllis Fireman Foundation program with a month-long preparation course and ongoing job coaching to assist them with finding employment. All of the clients seeking employment are job-ready and possess previous work skills, but the program provides them with additional support to address common barriers to employment. Topics covered in class include résumé preparation, effective interview tips, online job search tools, networking, and moral support. Many clients find work or are enrolled in training before the program ends.
