Work Readiness program

(MIAMI, FL) - Recently Employ Miami-Dade recognized students who successfully completed the Work Readiness program at South Dade Technical College. This component of the Employ Miami-Dade Construction Certification Training program focuses on education, leadership skills, resume writing and interview preparation. The Employ Miami-Dade initiative, launched in December 2014, provides the skills training necessary to prepare residents to enter the workforce and connect employers with potential workers.

“Many people in the job market today have been out of work or looking for work for a very long time,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C.  Moss. “In addition to offering certification, this program goes the extra mile to make sure that candidates interview well and are confident when they walk through the door.”

Graduates were congratulated and encouraged by speakers including Miami-Dade County Deputy Mayor Russell Benford, CareerSource South Florida Executive Director Rick Beasley and Neighbors and Neighbors Association Executive Director Leroy Jones along with school administration, family and friends.

Construction Certification training will begin at South Dade Technical College on January 4, 2016.
