The Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant (SPNEG) targets job seekers who have been unemployed for at least 27 weeks, defined by the Department of Labor (DOL) as Long-Term Unemployed (LTU). The goal of this program is to provide additional services to these individuals to enable them to successfully re-enter the workplace in an Advanced Manufacturing company.
There are many advantages tied to this grant, including:
- Additional training related resources and a larger amount of grant money that can be used to update skills and receive approved training certification to re-enter the workforce
- Business and employment services for connections to open employment opportunities through established relationships with employers and to specialized recruitment for Advanced Manufacturing related occupations
- Specialized case management including resume customization, mock Interviewing, LinkedIn help, skills identification for targeted opportunities, job search strategy, workshop enrollment, available e-learning options, and more.
If participating in this grant targeting Advanced Manufacturing is of interest and you believe you fit or will soon fit the category of Long-Term Unemployed, or are underemployed (working in a different field for less pay, either part-time or contract), please contact work2future at 408.794.1130 or 408.794.1201 for additional information.
