Tri-Town Community Action Agency program helps job seekers obtain specific skills
JOHNSTON, R.I. — For job seekers between 18 and 24 years old, the lack of specific job skills can be a huge hurdle.
Tri-Town Community Action Agency seeks to help applicants get over that obstacle — and help business owners hire qualified candidates — through its job readiness programs.
“Even with the improving job market, many applicants may not have the specific skills that an employer needs,” explained Tri-Town CEO Joseph DeSantis. “Our programs offer a way to get those skills, as well as providing paid experience for these candidates, meaning the business owner doesn’t have to pay for them to learn on the job.”
