What to Expect
You’ll receive one-on-one vocational counseling, partnering with one of our placement specialists to identify work environments and opportunities that could be a good fit for you. Your evaluation will help you set goals and make an action plan to achieve them. Once you’ve decided on a career path, the placement specialist will help you develop the skills you need to land and keep a job.
Develop the Skills to Succeed
Succeeding in the workplace takes more than the ability to perform a specific job function. Soft skills — like the ability to communicate, work with a team, lead a group or adapt to new situations — can be the key to excelling in an interview, landing a job and advancing your career. At HKSB, you’ll hone these skills. In doing so, you’ll make yourself a more attractive candidate for a position in whatever field you choose.
Our placements are as varied as our clients’ backgrounds and interests. We have placed individuals in a variety of settings including non-profit organizations, government sites, retail stores and professional service offices, including medical practices and law and accounting firms, as well as in the corporate arena.
