In August, 2010, the Graduates Network began a Vocational Development Orientation training course with the Employment Service of the AMIA (Asociación Mutua Israelita Argentina) in La Plata.

Participating Cimientos graduates are from Almirante Brown, Berazategui, Ensenada, Florencio Varela, and Quilmes. This program will last for approximately 3 months, and there will be 3 group meetings as well as 3 private individual coaching sessions related to creating a successful resumé and optimizing performance in a job interview.

Participants will also work on developing their strengths and skills in order to apply them to the workplace, and they will receive personalized support with regard to identifying potential jobs that are suitable to their skill-sets and interests so that they can successfully enter the workforce.

Finally, we are happy to announce that 175 alumni are logging onto our blog on a daily basis, using this forum to ask questions, communicate with each other, and access new information and opportunities posted online!

Thank you for your continued support!

En el mes de agosto la Red de Egresados inició una capacitación de orientación para la búsqueda de empleo con el Servicio de Empleo de la Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) en La Plata.

Están participando 20 jóvenes de Almirante Brown, Berazategui, Ensenada, Florencio Varela y Quilmes. La capacitación durará aproximadamente 3 meses, y se harán 3 encuentros grupales y 3 coachings individuales donde les enseñará a armar su Curriculum Vitae y a atravesar con éxito una entrevista laboral.

Asimismo, trabajarán en sus fortalezas y habilidades para desenvolverse en un empleo y recibirán apoyo personalizado para postularse a búsquedas laborales activas de acuerdo a su perfil e intereses para que puedan insertarse en el mercado.

Por último, en relación al blog de egresados sobre el que informamos en el report anterior, ¡ya son 175 chicos logueados que diariamente entran para hacer consultas, comunicarse con todos los usuarios y ver las nuevas oportunidades e información que la Red les va brindando!

¡Gracias por todo el apoyo!
