Services for Job Seekers

Job Leads & Referrals

Linking Michiana is dedicated to helping job seekers find employment. To begin, each job seeker completes our application; discusses their experience, limitations, and goals to help proceed with a plan.

We assist job seekers with job leads, online employment applications, and referrals to employers at no charge. We work with our job seekers every step of the way, until they are hired. We also follow up with them during the first week to make sure they are happy.

Sometimes, job seekers simply need a place to vent their frustrations, talk to someone about their progress, and seek advice.  Having moral support can boost their self-esteem, help regain their focus, and renew their motivation to successfully find employment.

Please remember, Linking Michiana is a referral service and 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, or quits without adequate notice or good reason, we will discontinue our affiliation indefinitely.

Resume Assistance

Consulting

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.

We can build your resume

Many job seekers lack time or experience with computers and ask Linking Michiana to build a resume for them. We spend an average of six 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.

We follow similar procedures as a job interview
