Linking Michiana is here for you!
Linking Michiana is purposeful in helping people find employment. Job seekers are required to come to our office in person to complete our referral application and be willing review work history, discuss limitations, and set goals to proceed with a plan. We work with our clients every step of the way, until they are hired.
We assist job seekers with:
- Job search
- Job leads
- Employment applications
- Referrals to employers
- Moral Support
Occasionally, job seekers simply need a place to vent frustrations, talk about their progress, and need reassurance. Linking Michiana recognizes moral support can boost self-esteem, help regain focus, and renew confidence to successfully find employment.
Linking Michiana is a referral service, not a staffing agency. We are committed to helping job seekers find and pursue opportunities. We help all we can, but ultimately the job seeker must genuinely want to work and be earnestly committed to finding employment.
Note: If any of our clients is a no-call no-show for a job interview, does not show up for work, quits without adequate notice or good reason, repeatedly turns down job offers – we will discontinue our affiliation indefinitely.
Did you build your own resume and would like a second opinion? We will review your resume in great detail to recommend modifications and improvements. The first appointment is free. Each subsequent appointment fee: $30.
Many job seekers lack time or experience to build their own resume. We spend an average of six-eight hours working on a resume – from interviewing the job seeker; getting a keen understanding of their work experience, skills, and objective; building and designing a resume; to a final review with our clients to ensure absolute satisfaction. Fee: $150.
Our conference room is equipped with laptops for job seekers to look for employment, make or edit a resume, and follow up via email with employers. This is a free service. It is necessary to set appointments in advance!
