FAQs


Do you find jobs for people?
bullet No. We teach people how to get jobs. We also help to steer them in the right direction and maintain a current job board of many open positions. Also, check our online employment links to local employers

How do you do that?
bullet We stress the value of self-awareness to select the best-fitting job; we help you acquire job search skills such as networking and informational interviewing; we instruct you on your most likely-to-be-successful resume format and help you reach a comfort level with job interviewing.

Are you a social service agency?
bullet No, we're a not-for-profit agency serving the Syracuse area for more than 28 years, as the largest of its kind in Central New York. We have some programs that are funded by government grants, and we receive some United Way support, but many people pay their own way on a sliding scale. We also have a very active Corporate section that services businesses in our community.

What's the difference between a job coach and a career consultant?
bullet A job coach trains and mentors you in your actual job. A career consultant helps you get that job.

How much does it cost for you to write my resume?
bullet Our philosophy is that you are better served by applying for each job separately so that one resume is not adequate for a comprehensive job search. Resumes are targeted for job descriptions. Basically, we teach you how to do it yourself by producing one of your choosing. Our fees are based on a sliding scale according to your income and number in your family.

Do I have to be near your center to get your counseling services? In other words, can we do it online or over the phone, or email?
bullet Certainly contact us and let's work something out!
