Rising this Fall: Equipping Staff + Job Seekers for the Coming SLAM

Presenter: Kirkland J. Murray and Elisabeth Sanders-Park

The slam is coming! This Fall, when extended unemployment benefits end, the kids go back to school, and we learn to better live with COVID, millions of job seekers will flood the job market and the American Job Centers across America. The need for your services and the competition for jobs will be fierce. To win the jobs they want, job seekers will need to outshine lots of talented people. What will make the difference? Essential workplace (soft) skills!

In this discussion-style webinar, Kirkland J. Murray, President & CEO of Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation in Maryland, and Elisabeth Sanders-Park, author of "No One Is Unemployable," will share the emerging landscape and action steps you can take to immediately add in-demand, essential soft skills training to your programs so job seekers at all levels can learn or re-learn the uniquely human, not-so-soft skills to thrive as the world opens back up.

Three learning objectives participants could expect from attending this webinar:

1. Perspective on the coming reality including what is happening and why.

2. Steps they can take to prepare themselves and other workforce development practitioners to respond.

3. Practical ideas for preparing job seekers at all levels to prepare and thrive in the coming market.
