The Joseph Project
Scores of Milwaukeeans are finding jobs in Sheboygan County through The Joseph Project. The grass roots program is inspired by Robert L. Woodson Sr.’s book, “The Triumphs of Joseph,” about community-based initiatives. In the effort, churches host week-long class sessions to teach job-seekers the “soft skills” that help them in job interviews and in their beginning steps on the career ladder. If successful in the class, graduates are provided an interview with at least one of five participating firms.
Seeing the success and recognizing the potential of the program, the SCEDC gifted two minivans on Monday, May 16th to nearly double the capacity of the initiative. Every week Greater Praise Church of God in Christ in Milwaukee makes 24 round trips placing 9,000 miles per month transporting roughly 50 people to work from Milwaukee to jobs in Sheboygan County.
The project is actively seeking more companies who would like access to long-term entry-level employees. Employers who are looking for full-time candidates that pay at least $12.00/hr. and benefits are encouraged to contact us at 920-452-2479.
Staffing agencies are great for employers looking for entry level employees with work experience. These staffing agencies can help an employer find and screen applicants for open positions.
Job Boards can be a valuable resource to businesses searching for either part-time or full-time employees. Many of these job boards allow employers to post available jobs, search resumes and stay in constant contact with applicants. The cost of these service vary by site.
