TERO job bank participants attended the first session of Job and Career Preparation and Michael Stamper, an EBCI tribal member, successfully completed the full course which consisted of four classes with the last one being held on Thursday, April 14.

Southwestern Community College instructor John Mitchell taught essential skills for interviewing, resume building, job seeking, communications and customer service. Participants were also provided lunch, tote bags and a business casual outfit for completing the course.

Funding for the program was provided by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to assist in the enrichment of TERO job bank participants. This was the first of many courses that that TERO is planning to offer to their job bank participants.

“We would like to thank all who participated which includes TERO vendor John Parker of CIC Technologies, Sarah Teesateskie from EBCI’s Human Resources and Rachel Mathis from Higher Education and Training,” said Frances Long, TERO Job Bank coordinator.  “A special thank you goes out to TERO vendor Janet Arch, of ML&S Construction Services, and Michael Slee, of EBCI Transit Services, for their help in speaking to the job bank participants and conducting the mock interviews.”
