Ready To Work
Program summery
On October 15, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor announced $169,771,960 in grants to expedite the
employment of Americans struggling with long-term unemployment. The grants are part of the Ready to
Work Partnership (Ready To Work) initiative to support and scale innovative collaborations between
employers, nonprofit organizations and federal job training programs to help connect ready-to-work
Americans with ready-to-be-fit led jobs. (in CT $12 million)
-
This program responds to the President’s call to action to support and expand public-private partnerships
that are helping long-term unemployed individuals get back to work. The Ready To Work grant program
will provide those experiencing long-term unemployment with a range of training and supportive and
specialized services leading to rapid employment in middle and high-skilled jobs.
Ready To Work projects are built around a comprehensive, up-front assessment of long-term unemployed
individuals’ needs and skills, resulting in customized interventions across three tracks: 1) intensive coaching
and other short-term, specialized services culminating in directjob placement into middle and high-skilled
jobs; 2) short-term interventions leading to employment into middle and high-skilled jobs; and 3)
accelerated skills training along a career pathway to middle and high skilled jobs.
Projects incorporate work-based training models with earning components for long-term unemployed
workers through models such as on-thejob training (OJT), paid work experience, paid internships, and
Registered Apprenticeships. These programs also include tangible commitments from employers and other
partners to provide employment opportunities, technical skills training, and on-the-job training and other
paid work experience for H-I B occupations, while also addressing the barriers, income needs, and
supportive service needs unique to long-term unemployed workers.

OUR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
DEMOCRACY AND ITS AMERICAN INTERPRETATION
1, What is the purpose of the U.S. Government?
The purpose is expressed in the preamble to the Constitution:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more per
fect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic rrranquility provide
for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure
the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain
and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
2. What form of government do we have in the United States?
The United States, under its Constitution, is a Federal, democrat
ic republic, an indivisible union of 50 sovereign States. With the ex
ception of town meetings, a form of pure democracy, we have at
the local, state, and national levels a government which is “demo
cratic” because the people govern themselves; “representative” be
cause the people choose elected delegates by free and secret ballot;
and “republican” because government derives its power from the
will of the people.
3. What is the role of the citizen in our Government?
The citizen may take an active or passive role in the governmen
tal process. The United States today is even more of a participatory
democracy than was envisioned by the founders when they estab
lished a government “of the people, by the people, and for the
people,” as President Abraham Lincoln later described it. Along
with the constitutional responsibilities which accompany citizen
ship, such as providing revenues to the Government, the citizen is
afforded a wide range of rights and opportunities to influence the
making of public policy by the Government.
At the most basic level, the right to vote gives the citizen a
chance to help select those who will ultimately he responsible for
determining public policy. Beyond the casting of the ballot, a citi
zen may actively assist in nominating and electing preferred public
officials through volunteer activities and campaign donations. The
participation of citizens in the electoral process contributes greatly
to the sense of legitimacy of the Government,
Citizen involvement in the Government need not be manifested
only during election campaigns. Legislators are accustomed to
hearing from constituents expressing opinions about issues of the
day, and procedures exist which mandate that executive agencies
allow time for public comment before proposed regulations become
final. Individuals may also join with others who hold similar views
to make the most of their influence with Government on particular
issues; this is how interest groups or political action committees
are established and the lobbying process begins.
4. What contributions has our country made to the institution of
government?
Some of the U.S. contributions to the institution of government
are as follows: a written constitution, an independent judiciary to
interpret the Constitution, and a division of powers between the
Federal and State Governments.

How to Effectively Market Yourself for a Job When You’ve Been Long-Term Unemployed
www.shrm.org
For meD people losing ajob is a devastating experience. Not finding one right away is even more discouraging, but the sooner
you ger sDrted looking and the more dedicated you are, the more likely your search will be a positive experience.
The Sociep for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the largest HR association in the worid, with more than 275000
memhcrC Our members, HR professionals in organizations representing all sizes and industries, recognize that as arerult of the
‘c’rirs-iono cconomic downturn, an unprecedented number of Americans have been unemployed for six months or more.
are 000cetng our members on how to review their organization’s hiring procedures to ensure mey do not ntontionadi or
ordverreotv give less consideration to certain job candidates based solely on their unemployment status. Ncverthokrss, havnci a
resunruwitn gaps in work history can pose a challenge for the job seeker. This challenge is not insurmountable, and SHRPI
moiYmers offer the following advice to help you, as ajob seeker, put your best foot forward.
Step 1: Approach yourjob search as though it WERE your job
Devote time— up to eight hours a day—to finding a job. Set a schedule with daily tasks in order to establish a structured
routine. Having a schedule makes people more efficient. Giving yourself a deadline by, say, blocking off2p.m. toP p.m. to vor
on an appiicat:on or maRe your calls is better than saying you’ll get around to it as soon as you can.
Try to mantan a flexible attitude, and project a vvillingness to learn. Your old job/career may not exist anymore. so you may
need to cieveiop nevv skills or apply the old ones in a different way.
if you are feeling stuck, seek out groups of people who are in the same situation. Many community centers, religious entities
and other organizations host meetings forjob seekers. It may help you to discuss your efforts with others.
Step 2: Stay active by engaging in productive activities
Find activities to show that you are still engaged in your community and focused on gaining skills and qualifications. Activities
also fill time on your resume, showing employers that you haven’t been stagnant since you left your previous position.
Personal Development or Professional Development
Classes at a community college, university or training program can keep you up-to-date with technology and other trends in
your field so that you’ll be informed when you do go on interviews or even chat informally with employers.
Many educational institutions have career centers with well-connected advisors who know what employers are looking for
and who 5 hiring. Consider a training program or temporary position, offered by many employers. Short-term positions give
you a chance to test-drive a specific job or company.
Development Through Volunteer Engagement
Volunteering can involve much more than planting trees and painting buildings; it’s also a great way to learn new skills. You
can design a website, organize an event, write letters on behalf of the organization or have any variety of other responsibilities.
Volunteering at a specific
Volunteering can give you exposure to a new field or allow you to try out a new career.
organization you want to work for is an excellent way to get your foot in the door and make a notable first impression. If you can
show you are a valuable and effective volunteer, employers will think you may make a valuable and effective employee.
Volunteering enables you to expand your network. By working on a cause you are passionate about, you will meet likeminded people, some of whom may be able to help with yourjob search.
Volunteering is a fun and valuable way to break up the monotony and provide you with an anchor while you look for a job. It
can also provide a sense of accomplishment.
Step 3: Update and revise your resume
Understand the online application process before submitting your resume. Applying for ajob today requires that you tailor
your resume to the specific position. Before submitting your resume, make sure it contains some of the key words that are
outlined in the job description.
Use terms that apply to the specific job and/or industry. Sprinkling in newer terms can show that you’re current with the
technology and other trends of the field.
Include accomplishments—both at work and outside of it—so employers can see how you’ve done, notjust what you’ve done.
Quantify your experiences. Use numbers to communicate changes or improvements you have made over a specific period.
Examples include quantitative gains in production or performance, notable customer satisfaction, greater organizational
performance, cost reductions or cost avoidance.
Include legitimate volunteer or nontraditional work experience, to eliminate or decrease any gaps in employment.
if your formal education occurred more than 10 years ago, consider taking dates off and adding other training or education
you have obtained since then.
Step 4: Network, network, network
Networking is still the most effective way to find out aboutjobs. Prepare your “elevator speech,” in which you describe your skills
and career goals in two minutes. Preparing ahead helps you take advantage of opportunities to talk, at a moment’s notice, witn
someone who may be in a position to help you.
.
Reach out to family, friends, neighbors and associates.
Use your connections to your advantage. The more people you know, the better your chances of finding and landing ajob
Talk vvith your previous employers and co-workers. People who have seen you at work before and are in your field of experience
can be the best people to know.
Seek out community groups for assistance, including those for unemployed people, who help one another with leads,
references and other support. Programs, both formal and informal, have started in communities nationwide,
If you can’t find a group in your community, start one, With nearly a quarter of Americans laid off at some point because of the
recession, you do not have to be alone in your search. Be willing to help others in your groups. Paying it forward can be of great
benefit when your colleagues get settled in a new role. Not only will it help you, but it looks great to businesses if you let them
know you started a group or are active in one that helps people in the community.
•
Use online sites, including Linkedin.
If you don’t have a Linkedin profile, create one. Employers use this site to look for new talent so make sure your profile
contains keywords that are relevant to jobs that interest you.
Use the search function on Linkedln to find profiles of people seeking positions similar to what you are interested in pursuing
Then use these profiles as templates to modify your profile.
See what companies your connections and their connections have worked for. Those who worked at a company a few years
ago likely still know people who work there.
Join groups that apply to you. Many industries, regions and even companies have their own pages. These are a great source
of information and a way to keep current with what’s happening in a particular field.
•
Reach out to employers that interest you.
Many companies host open houses or exhibitions to showcase their vvork, If it looks interesting to you, check it out. Ask
questions and make some contacts, too.
If you want to talk with someone at an organization, go for it. Reach out to a firm you have great interest in and ask to come in
and learn more about it. Don’t mention employment in the first conversation. A good first impression can lead to that important
referral or helpful information.
•
Look for local nonprofit or government organizations that can help you with your job search.
Never pay an organization to find you a job—most likely it is not a legitimate business.
Take advantage of the services that government-funded Career One Stop centers offer. These centers provide free assistance
to job seekers. More information is available at http://www.careeronestop.org/
Learn about local nonprofit organizations serving the long-term unemployed. The programs are as varied as the communities
they serve and can be researched online.
Step 5: Become More Technologically Proficient
It’s no secret that many employers look up their applicants online. While most people know to keep offensive pictures and
posts off Facebook, you can take this a step further by creating a brand for yourself. Use Linkedln as your primary tool, but learn
more about how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook as a means of “branding yourself.”
Social networks are an excellent way to interact with potential employers. Sharing information via a status update on Linkedln
or re-tweeting or tweeting at an employer or sending messages on Facebook with relevant information can get you noticed.
Scanning blogs on relevant topics allows you to stay up-to-date with the industry and hear different perspectives. Commenting
on blogs and engaging with their authors are other valuable methods of gaining contacts in the field.
Joining listserves is a great way to crowdsource your information gathering. People often mention opportunities they heard of
or topics they think are worth sharing.
Although it’s efficient to comb through the larger online job boards, it’s worth noting that many listings receive hundreds of
applicants. One way to find less visible opportunities is to research what companies you might like to work for and search their
sites for vacancies. It takes longer to do this, but you mayjust find that perfect under-the-radar opportunity. Following up your
application with a message to the company contact person further enhances your potential of being noticed.
If you need help in navigating the world of computers or even getting access to a computer consider a local library. Most
libraries have computers available to the public, and some offer free resources like classes or coaching. Career One-Stops also
offer classes and computers for public use.
Step 6: Prepare for your future interview
Get fit by exercising and eating right. When you feel good you will come across well in an interview.
Consider how you look. A good haircut and neat, clean business attire are a way to say “I respect myself.” You don’t have to
buy expensive suits if you don’t have the budget; just scour the resale shops, and make sure the clothes fit and are clean and
ironed.
Address gaps in your resume’s work history upfront. Offering an explanation prevents a potential employer from making
assumptions that may be incorrect. Similarly, take the opportunity to address any possible concerns about your being
overqualified for the position. When a candidate raises the issue, this can help put an employer’s mind at ease.
Never underestimate the value of a handwritten note. Send one to each person who takes time to meet with you in an
interview or with whom you have a key networking conversation. In a high-tech world, the high-touch approach always gets
noticed.

WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT
What is WIA?
“WIA” stands for the “Workforce Investment Act.” This legislation, passed by Congress
in 1998, provides federal funds for employment and training assistance. WIA services
help people improve their opportunities for getting a job, increase their wages, and
provides money for job skills training.
The WIA program is administered by a Workforce Investment Boards (or WIB) in each
region of CT. WIA procedures vary depending on the region of the state in which a
person lives. But the basic procedure is:
•
Contact a CT Works office and tell staff that you interested in WIA training.
•
You will be scheduled for a WIA orientation/overview session.
After the WIA orientation/overview session, you will be scheduled for another
meeting to see whether you are eligible for WIA. For adults, WIA funds are
divided into 2 categories. If you meet the requirements of one of these
categories, you are eligible.
Adult have low income and lack job skills that are currently in demand, or
Dislocated Worker have been or will be laid off because of the current
economic situation (as opposed to leaving a job for personal reasons) and need
job skills that are currently in demand.
—
—
If you are eligible, a case manager will review training options with you.
Please note that WIA funds are limited. Even if you are eligible, training funds
are not guaranteed

Rides To Work Gets You To Job
hiterviews Congratulations. You
have a job interview at a business in
another town. How are you going to
get there? Check out RTW.
—
The road to employment starts with
an interview. Today’s jobs are often
many miles away from where people
live. RTW may provide transportation
to job interviews or job fairs, across
town or 30 miles away. In many cases,
the job fairs are on-site at employers
that also have regular transportation
available for workers.

The Workforce Alliance and the CT Department of Labor often arrange on-site job fairs at an employer’s location. Job fairs are a big help for
employers. Reading your resume is not enough; employers must meet and interview job-seekers. Job fairs save employers time and money,
and increase your chances of landing a good job.
The RTW Auto Emergency Fund Car repair bills and the rising cost of insurance can take a big chunk out of a paycheck. Sometimes, it’s just
too much. The RTW Auto Emergency Fund offers one-time grants up to $600 to help you keep your car on the road. Use it for repairs,
registration or driver’s license fees, or to pay car insurance. Don’t let a bump in the road keep you from getting to work.
-
Start Right Don’t let the cost of commuting keep you from taking a job. Try “Job Starter”, the RTW program that provides free
transportation for your first month of employment. “Job Starter” gives you time to catch up and begin affording the commute.

Putting Healthy Food Within Reach
Employment and Training
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) recipients throughout
Connecticut may be eligible to participate in an Employment and Training Program. The Employment and
Training program was created by Congress in 1987 as a means to assist able-bodied clients in obtaining
employment. From the start, the purpose of the Employment and Training program has been to help
SNAP households gain skills that will increase self-sufficiency. States are allowed flexibility in designing and
operating their Employment and Training programs.
If you are receiving SNAP in Connecticut, and not receiving financial assistance from the Temporary Family
Assistance program, you may be eligible to participate in one of the following activities; English as a Second
Language, General Equivalency Diploma, Adult Basic Education, Work Experience or Structured Job Search
Skill Training. The Connecticut Employment and Training program also offers short term vocational
programs at several area colleges and nonprofit providers.
DSS has currently partnered with ten organizations to provide these Employment and Training program
services. They are:

economic stability in all communities by providing employers with a trained

Our Services
NCD is a group of college students committed to bridging the gap between the college community
and New Haven at large. We offer a welcoming environment providing case management for lowincome and homeless clients. NCD is run entirely by volunteers, with cooperation from several
gracious community partners.
No Closed Doors aims to harness the skills of college students to break down barriers and open
doors between people and the resources that they need to succeed. We believe that everyone in our
community should have access to the services, opportunities and attention they need to achieve
personal success.
Our service is unique in that it has no eligibility requirements for clients. We do not turn anyone
away, unless they pose a security threat to themselves, other clients or volunteers. In addition, there
is no limit on the services that clients can receive from us. All of our volunteers are passionate and
friendly college students, eager to provide flexible and comprehensive assistance that complements
the more specialized services provided by other community organizations. Our program is also
unique for students, as it provides an outlet for them to make a direct, substantial, and meaningful
impact in the community in which they live and study.
NCD open:
Monday through Friday

5 p.m.
We welcome walk—ins, though to ensure that we can fit you into our schedule we recommend
that you call us at (203) 752—971 1, e—mail us [email protected]
or fill out the form found on our website: www.yale.edu/ncd under the clients section.
NCD’s success is contingent on successful partnerships with other community service agencies from around
New Haven, Please let us know if you are interested in referring clients to our organization, having us refer
clients to you, or partnering with our outreach team to connect with our city’s most marginalized citizens.

Frequently Asked Questions
You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.
.
For example:
How is the climate/weather in North Dakota?
North Dakota experiences all four seasons and has ample activit
ies to enjoy in each. A common
misconception is that it always is cold in North Dakota. It comes
as a surprise to many that North Dakota
actually has a remarkably long temperate season, including beautif
ul sunny days in June, when the sun
rises before 6 a.m. and sets after 9:30 p.m. Below are average
temperatures and what to expect from each
season.
Summer Perfect for all outdoor activities. The days are warm, someti
mes even hot, but nights are cool
enough for a restful sleep. Expect an average temperature of 82’
Fahrenheit (28’ Celsius).
Fall The first frost, which usually occurs about mid-Septembe
r, signals the end of summer season for
many North Dakotans as the days are pleasantly warm, the
nights cool and precipitation light. Expect an
average temperature of 66’ Fahrenheit (19’ Celsius).
Winter Winter is a grand season to many North Dakotans.
It is the season for snowmobiling in open,
uncrowded fields and for such vigorous outdoor recreation as
ice skating, ice hockey, cross country skiing
and snowshoeing. Expect an average temperature of 24’ Fahren
heit (40 Celsius).
Spring Spring is a time of rapid change in North Dakota. It
seems that almost overnight in late March or
early April the snow mantle melts, the fertile soils dry and field
preparations begins. Expect an average
temperature of 52’ Fahrenheit (11° Celsius).
