Community Services Consortium provides job search assistance for youth and adult participants in our federal and state workforce programs, which provide funding to increase access to jobs and training for the people we serve in Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties. We work closely with our local WorkSource Oregon Centers, and our goal is to provide personalized service to job seekers who actively participate in job search.
CSC encourages job seekers to complete the registration process with their WorkSource Oregon Center, including creating their Job Seeker Profile on iMatchSkills, and meeting with a WorkSource Oregon staff member. In addition, completing the WIN Skills Review will help CSC staff determine whether you are eligible for the National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC Certificate), which many Oregon employers recognize. We want to have as much information as possible about your work history and your skills, so we can better assist you in reaching your employment goals. Completing the WorkSource Oregon registration process is a valuable start to your job search.
CSC staff provides workshops on the tools of job search, such as developing a resume, completing a job application and practicing for a job interview. We also offer career exploration, which includes computer-based assessments, for those who are not sure what their next step should be after a job loss. Our staff also refers job seekers to other service organizations, for support in their job search, such as the Department of Human Services, Vocational Rehabilitation or other community resources. We refer to other CSC services, too, such as Housing, Energy Assistance and our Youth Programs.
