Google Prepares JobTrain Students for Today's Job Market

JobTrain goes the extra mile. It's the additional support that truly distinguishes our program and transforms the lives of our clients. Whether it's help with a resume or just having someone to talk to, our clients receive one-on-one counseling and life skills training. They are taught the importance of being professional, reliable and hard-working. They learn to be effective communicators and self-motivated problem solvers. When they graduate from JobTrain, they are ready to thrive and impress on day one in their new job.

Our wonderful partners at Google recently led mock interviews on their campus with JobTrain students. Google recruiters volunteered their time, expertise and encouragement to help students gain a competitive edge when speaking with prospective employers. Engaging with recruiters, developing interview techniques and learning how to enhance their resumes with representatives from the world’s leading internet search engine company, are just a few of the many ways that JobTrain prepares students for today’s job market.

Currently pursuing certification in Office Skills, Tina Cherry, was amazed by her experience at Google. “My one-on-one with Janice Buckley changed my life. She was fantastic. Now, I know how to market myself in a competitive way and my confidence level has increased because of what Janice taught me.”

Google is a dynamic partner of JobTrain, and their supportive measures to help our students and our community are greatly appreciated. We’re especially grateful to Kieu-Thu Bui from Google’s People Operations for organizing such an incredible event.
