“Why Won’t You Hire Me?" Job-Readiness Workshop

St Paul United Methodist Church 231 Geneva Hwy. Enterprise.
Christian Mission Centers Presents-The 3rd annual “Why Won’t You Hire Me? Job- Readiness Workshop.

When you apply for a job, wouldn’t it be nice to stand out from everyone else? Wouldn’t it be nice to meet several employers all in one place? Well, here’s your chance. Christian Mission presents “Why Won’t You Hire Me?

In this sometimes complicated job market finding employment can be difficult. This is why we are offering this event once again. Every year this event gets better and better, Last year several participants were able to find employment as a result of attending.

Harolyn Benjamin, Program Director for Christian Mission said “I often say to people, if you went to work this morning and left someone at home in bed or on the couch then this is the best gift you can give that person”

Participants will learn why interviewing skills are so important; they will learn what an employer’s means when they say. Gone in .30 seconds.
Participants will have a personal contact with some of the largest companies in the country.

During our Q&A session participants leave with the answers to the right questions that will give them a leg over their competition.

For years I have asked Employers what they were looking for in an employee, surprisingly the answer was very simple. “We are looking for the person who used the tools given to him/her and created an opportunity”

If you or a love one are having a difficult time finding a job then this free event is for you, Not only will participants have a chance to become knowledgeable about local companies. They will have an opportunity to talk to area employers doing the hiring.

Attendees can meet with representatives from local companies like; the City of Enterprise, Medical Center Enterprise, Lowes, Wal-mart, Wellsfargo.

HAVE QUESTIONS READY FOR EMPLOYERS Q&A

This event is free and open to the public the event will be held Wednesday, April 29th 311 Geneva Hwy St Paul United Methodist Church Enterprise. Continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Just the Facts: Marriage

Apr 14, 2015 - Apr 28, 2015 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

Head Start, 900 West Powell St., Dothan
Marriage is more than just a wedding. The road to happily ever after is paved with love, forgiveness, gratitude and trust. The Just the Facts: Marriage workshop on April 14, 21 and 28 from 5:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m. at Head Start (900 West Powell St., Dothan) will help couples and individuals discover the secrets to a healthy and lasting relationship. Call 334-671-7774 to register.

According to research, marriage binds couples together in a network of affection, mutual aid, and mutual obligation, and is the outward, visible sign of a couple’s desire to create a lasting love and provide the bastion of support necessary for the growth of healthy children. Healthy marriages protect adults as well as children, mothers as well as fathers. Research indicates that people in healthy relationships experience more physical and emotional health, financial stability, are less likely to be victims of or to commit violent crimes, have decreased risk of drug and alcohol abuse, are less likely to contract STDs, and are more likely to have better relationships with their children. Mounting scientific evidence confirms that the best environment for children to flourish is being raised by parents in healthy marriages and this evidence indicates that in such healthy marriages, children are less likely to engage in high risk behaviors, are more likely to succeed academically, are physically and emotionally healthier, have a better relationship with their parents, are less likely to be raised in poverty and have a decreased chance of divorcing if they get married.

Healthy You Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit formed in 2010 in Dothan. The mission of Healthy You, Inc. is to enhance quality of life for citizens of Alabama through educational health initiatives and public awareness campaigns teaching personal responsibility when making lifestyle choices.
