Power of Possible Workshop Series

Every one of the individuals we work with comes with a story. They believe the narrative they have been told about who they are and their potential—language matters. People believe what they are told about themselves. They define themselves by others’ prejudice.  

But what if we told people how smart they are, how motivated they could be, and that they could accomplish what they want? What would happen if they started to believe a different story—a different truth?  

This is the Power of Possible. 

Our workshop series covers a range of topics: the Elements of Job Search, Introduction to Interviewing, Planning for the Future, Steps to Career Advancement, and more! As you progress through each topic, your job seeking will become more successful, ultimately bringing you into a new, self-sufficient lifestyle. 

The Power of Possible Workshop series is available exclusively to our registered CES Job Seekers.
