Virtual Job and Career Group: Platform to Employment Online

Platform to Employment featuring Ben Bissell and Christy Billings with Russell Job Library Career offerings.

Due to a conflict, Recovery Employment Program is RESCHEDULED to Oct 6th.

Recovery Employment Program: Charles Mitchell, REP Job Coach, Middlesex Chamber of Commerce

Russell Library presents weekly opportunities to network with other job seekers, as well as receive the advice of professionals. The focus will be on the job market and provide updated industry information during this uncertain time of COVID19. The Job and Career Group hosts virtual workshops and a weekly networking session via WebEX. You will need to download WebEx to attend. 

The Recovery Employment Program, is a program with opportunities.

This program will serve the community of those who are in recovery and putting their lives back together. Together as a community we can help them take the necessary steps on their road. 

Many don’t see a way out, or no hope. But with the REP, there is. We offer employment to many who even see themselves as unemployable. Why? Many have the proper skills sets, but are lacking self esteem due their past addiction. However, the Recovery Employment Program reasserts confidence in the job applicant’s abilities and in themselves as they gain employment. We offer job coaching as well as counsel. This is not just a job placement program, but it is a life skill program that will help people in recovery with the life skills they need through the coaching aspect of the program.

Registration is required.
