“Great strategies for all the phases of the job search.”
Jacquie Brinkley, California State Library

 

“Thank you for creating such helpful reemployment tools.” Workforce Program Administrator

 

“No other vendor offers tools like these. There are plenty of online resources, but none assists in creating a comprehensive and simple employment search plan while also motivating the person.”
Workforce Program Administrator

 

YES helps us “assist adult basic and high school level graduates.” Education Program Coordinator

 

“We use YES in every RESEA initial assessment interview. When we have new staff come on board, they are required to attend a basic training for the program and learn about requirements and procedures. I have each new staff member learn about YES, complete one in class, and then partner up to review and assess the other person using the YES Administrator’s Guide as a tool to understand what each category could mean in regard to job search assessment and reducing barriers….I have ALWAYS had positive feedback after it was completed. I do this staff training for two reasons: (1) So they understand the questions and can answer questions of customers and program participants. (2) To understand how valuable the information can be and how much time it takes…I usually instruct staff to have the participant complete Step 3 and return this as homework during the follow-up appointments. There has been positive feedback from customers when they read through the guide and pay attention to the tips and information provided. This also provides them with something to take away from the appointment and utilize after the initial assessment.” Workforce Program Manager

 

“Shows job seekers where to begin and what priorities to focus on…makes the job search more productive.” Diana Aughe, Career Coach, Coaching from the Heart

 

“I use YES with teenagers and adults with disabilities during vocational evaluations / career assessments. Easy to read, easy to complete, and easy to score. Great inventory.”
Workforce Program Administrator
