Workforce solutions hopes internet training will help applicants find jobs

Posted: Updated:

Workforce Solutions of Deep East Texas is helping job seekers increase their chances of being hired with an internet job search tools class.

Officials say the majority of employers are posting their applications online and their goal is show those looking for employment how to use technology to their advantage.

"Everybody is not familiar with the computer and they don't know how to manipulate and get the answers in but the pro's of it all you can put in as many as you can put in, in a days time," said Delois Flakes, Training Coordinator.

Training coordinator Delois Flakes says with so many web sites available it's important that applicants stand out and how they answer job questionnaires could make or break their chances.

 "The employee wants to know that they take their job as serious as they take it," said Flakes.

Workforce Solutions also offers classes on resume building and interview skills.

Job seeker Keonna Maxie has taken those classes and feels she is better prepared for her next job.

"Its something that will help me go on in life and better," said Maxie.

 Flakes hopes that her students leave with a better idea of where they want their career to go and she says having direction will make the process of searching through jobs and applying easier.

"Just know what you want to do, know what you're really qualified for, don't just put in an application to be putting in an application," said Flakes.

"I made a decision to go to job corps and once I'm done with job core I'm going to go to college and make a better life for my son," said Maxie.

Workforce Solutions hosts classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday in Lufkin and on Tuesday and Thursday in Nacogdoches.
