Lynchburg Community Action Group, Inc (Lyn-CAG) now provides an Employment Services Program to assist the unemployed, underemployed or those persons who desire a career change. This program is NOT an employment agency, but we offer a range of necessary services at no-cost. These services are free to you; however, they are invaluable in making your job search a smooth and more focused endeavor.
Our commitment is to work with you in finding suitable and stable employment. We base this commitment on the agency’s mission: “Helping to meet the needs of people in Central Virginia.”
There are NO eligibility requirements or income criteria to participate in this NO COST program and receive services.
All NEW clients are required to attend a Job Readiness Workshop. This two (2) hour training class is scheduled every Friday 11am – 1 pm.
Clients MUST contact the office on Monday or Tuesday prior to the workshop day to register.
Registration can be made by calling (434) 455-1601 ext. 306 or stopping by the office to sign-up.
Immediately following this workshop, the Program Manager will schedule an appointment with each participant to include a personal interview for counseling, developing an action plan and starting your resume.
- You will be given our undivided attention in assisting in you with this job search opportunity.
- We will assist you in exploring your interests and abilities, preparing a professional resume, developing interview skills and overcoming barriers to employment stability.
- Use of our Employment Service Program Computer Lab to facilitate your job search skills, on-line job application completion process, and employer research in preparation for an interview.
