"This program is amazing. My instructor is exceptional. I have been on a plateau for some time, the instructor showed me how to tap into my strengths. I feel like I have a purpose, know that it is a challenge, but I welcome the challenge. I am invigorated and look forward to discovering more about my professional abilities."

"After completing the WorkReadyNH program, I have more confidence in pursuing my dream job. I learned how to target my resume to a specific employer and how to ace a job interview. I also learned that 75%-85% of employment opportunities are found through the art of networking. I updated my communication skills and learned how to give a short presentation. Online, at my own pace, I worked on Reading, Math and Locating Information. Last but not least, I gained twelve terrific new acquaintances. WorkReadyNH was a lot of work but it was also a lot of fun. I highly recommend this program for young people as well as older job seekers. "

"WorkReadyNH taught me to use my personal strengths to achieve goals I never thought possible. I learned how to prepare a resume and cover letter, better communication with others and how to give a great interview and dress for success. Most of all Work Ready gave me the confidence I needed to go out and pursue my dreams. If not for the great staff and teachers at WorkReadyNH and all the skills I learned; I wouldn’t have the great career in the Aerospace Industry.”

“WorkReadyNH helped me with the interview process; we practiced in class and were given excellent advice on our technique. WorkReadyNH helped me gain my confidence back, as I had been laid off 5 times in 4 years. I first learned about the Advanced Composite Manufacturing (ACM) program at Great Bay in Rochester through John Randoph in the WorkReadyNH class. I enrolled in the ACM program and I am now the ACM’s Instructor’s Aide, which is a great position and fit for me. If not for the WorkReadyNH program; I would still be working dead end jobs. This program really gives you a better chance of finding a better job. You never know where this program will lead you."

"During the WorkReadyNH course we practiced interviews and were instructed on the do’s and don’ts of the interview process. The instructor taught the proper way to put together a resume, how to write a cover letter and how to do an elevator speech that prepares you to talk to a prospective employer in 5 minutes or less and why you would be perfect fit for an open position in their company. I actually went to one interview on a Thursday and received a call that following Tuesday offering me a position at their company. Will it work that way for everyone? I don’t know. I’m a firm believer in what you put into it is what you will get out of it."

"My time in the WorkReadyNH program was an asset to my current position. I am constantly on the phone, dealing with both pleasant and unpleasant people and the soft skills I acquired through this program help me deal with those situations. I recommend the WorkReadyNH program to anyone needing to refresh their skills or just starting out in the work force."
