Our Graduates are Getting Jobs!

Helping underprivileged youths who have no work experience to find jobs is a tremendous challenge!  According to a survey completed by 240 of our young participants, 60% were looking for work and 10% had been looking for work for over 1 year.

How are we helping? 269 youths have participated in training courses that teach the following:  how to write a CV, how to identify their strengths, how to complete a successful job interview, and especially how to organize their job search.

Please find testimonials from several participants below:

“I wanted to tell you that today I am starting a job as a machinist at an industrial plant, with a good salary.  I wanted to thank you and the Cimientos Graduate Network for your support with the job-training program.  I am at your disposal for whatever you need! Thank you!
Leandro, Graduate of Berazategui, Class of ‘95

“I attended the course and they helped me a ton to put together my CV, and helped address concerns I had regarding job search engines.They taught me to look for a good job, among many other things. I had many job interviews thanks to them.  Now my search is much more varied.”
Johanna, Graduate of Berazategui, Class of ‘08

We are also in touch with companies and HR departments in order to spread the word about job vacancies and recruit candidates who can then be interviewed.  Recently, 12 young adults found work through the efforts of the Cimientos Graduate Network.

“I can tell you that thanks to your email with this job announcement at Manpower I found a job, and I am currently working.  Thank you so much for acting as an intermediary and helping me to find something that I needed so badly.”
Antonella, Graduate of Capital Federal, Class of ‘09

“Thanks to you I am developing professionally at a publishing house, and I would even like to participate in a course that they are offering.  Thank you very much."
Sebastian, Graduate of Capital Federal, Class of ‘09

Your donation is helping more than 1000 Argentine kids have a present and a future with increased opportunities.

Thank you for supporting this important cause!

Nuestros egresados están consiguiendo trabajo

¡Ayudar a conseguir un trabajo a jóvenes de bajos recursos y sin experiencia laboral es un gran desafío! De una encuesta que respondieron 240 de nuestros jóvenes, un 60% estaba buscando trabajo y un 10% lo hacía hace más de 1 año.

¿Cómo lo estamos ayudando? 269 chicos ya participaron de cursos de capacitación donde se les enseña a: armar su CV, que descubran sus fortalezas, cómo afrontar una entrevista laboral con éxito y muy especialmente en cómo orientar la búsqueda.

Compartimos testimonios de algunos participantes:

“Quería contarte que hoy inicio a trabajar operario en una planta industrial, con un buen sueldo.

Quería agradecerles a ustedes y a  la Red de Egresados de Cimientos por el apoyo brindado con el curso de inserción laboral. ¡Quedo a su disposición ante cualquier requerimiento! ¡¡¡Muchas Gracias!!!
Leandro, egresado de Berazategui en 2005

”Fui al curso y me ayudaron un montón en el armado del currículum, como también en las dudas que tenía con respecto a los buscadores de empleo. Me enseñaron a buscar mejor trabajo, entre muchas otras cosas. Tuve muchas entrevistas laborales gracias a ellos. Ahora tengo mayor variedad en la búsqueda.”
Johanna, egresada de Berazategui en 2008

También estamos en contacto con empresas o departamentos de Recursos Humanos para difundir  búsquedas y reclutar candidatos que luego los derivamos para ser entrevistados. En este último tiempo, 12 jóvenes consiguieron trabajo a través de la gestión de la Red de Egresados.

 “Les comento que gracias a su e-mail con este aviso para trabajar en Manpower conseguí empleo, y actualmente estoy trabajando. Desde ya muchas gracias por ser intermediario y ayudarme a conseguir algo que tanto necesitaba.”
Antonella, egresada de Capital Federal en 2008

“Gracias a ustedes yo estoy desarrollándome laboralmente en una editorial y me gustaría además poder  participar del curso que ofrecen. Desde ya muchas gracias.”
Sebastián, egresado de Capital Federal en 2009

Con su aporte está ayudando a que más de 1000 chicos argentinos tengan un presente y un futuro con más oportunidades.

¡Muchas gracias por sumarse a esta causa importante!
