Following is an overview of the process for job seekers. Please see the Program Details
for more information, as well as an application.
- Attend an orientation
- Fill out application
- Complete soft skills assessment – After completing the assessment, both the job seeker and The Power of the Dream will receive a report on strengths and areas for improvement.
- Take job readiness course – If a participant has less than 12 months of verifiable employment history or scores below a six on the soft skills assessment, it’s required that they attend a 96-hour job readiness course through Wake Technical Community College.
- Needs assessment – Before entering the portal, participants must meet with The Power of the Dream to discuss their specific employment support needs. The Power of the Dream will attempt to refer participants to partnering organizations who can provide these resources, but is not responsible for securing employment resources for program participants and does not guarantee that participants will receive all the employment supports requested during the needs assessment.
