discussing employment opportunities during the Keep a Job program
As a part of the Judicial Branch's civic outreach program, the Administrative Office of the Courts recently partnered with the Salvation Army's Keep a Job program to present a job skills seminar at the New Castle County Courthouse on April 19, 2013. The one-day conference entitled "Brighten Your Path for Success" introduced the participants of the Keep a Job program to the Delaware Judiciary, provided information about how the courts serve the public, and discussed employment opportunities within the Judicial Branch. Representatives from the Court of Common Pleas, Family Court, Capitol Police, the AOC, and the Salvation Army presented information on a variety of topics related to employment skills and the courts. Participants were given an opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills through mock interviews and received tips from the experts on resume writing and the application process.
The Salvation Army's Keep a Job program is a community based organization developed in collaboration with the Department of Labor, Department of Health & Social Services, the Delaware Economic Development and the Delaware Transit Corporation.
