We do not provide jobs! We offer clients tools to
find and keep jobs. Each client is assigned a Mentor,who will guide clients through the process
of searching for jobs. Our clients can learn basic skills on how to use a computer, search online for jobs, draft relevant resumes and create
dynamic cover letters, and apply for positions of interest.
Our mission at "OK", is to successfully provide the skills and resources to our clients in order for them to find and keep long term employment. We have the knowledge to assist our clients as well as resources that can help each client should they need more assistance outside computer literacy, resumes and cover letters. We pride ourselves in being able to help in more then just one area. No matter the situation - We will ensure you have the resources/contacts that pertain to your individual situation.
We teach strategies, and "do's and don'ts" when applying and interviewing. To be successful
in todays competitive job market, not only must a job seeker have basic qualifications, but something much more....and that "something" is a critical tool which we teach, that ensures our clients stand out in the sea of applications received by employers today. Education, knowledge and comprehending the latest trends all guarantee that clients are able to secure an interview, and sell themselves using a series of strategies that can be applied through mock interviews in order that there are no surprise questions intended to eliminate candidates. We supply the tools and know how. Clients supply the intent to explore opportunities now unlocked for them. OK, LETS GO!.

It is hard to believe, in todays "Computer age", that

We go over everything to ensure our clients will and are able to move forward successfully.
