Bridging the Gap Job Coaching and Placement Enrollment Application
EADC’s Bridging the Gap program promotes the upward economic mobility of East Athens residents through activities that promote employment attainment and sustainability.

Through individual and group sessions, enrollees complete at least 14 hours of instruction that focuses on soft-skills development, employment readiness and search, job placement, and job sustainability.
The soft skills sessions explore the people skills, work ethics, personality traits, attire, and attitudes that enable a person to perform well in the work environment. Such attributes include dealing effectively with authority, time management, teamwork, professional communication, conflict resolution, and financial literacy. Participants engage in skill-building exercises designed to help them make good decisions, both on a job and in their personal lives.

The job readiness and search component focuses on preparing and looking for work. Topics include job search strategies, computer basics, networking effective resumes, online applications, and interviewing techniques.  A computer lab is available for writing resumes and cover letters, applying for jobs online, and participating in virtual interviews.  Important community parters in job readiness and search include the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce and the Northeast Georgia Business Alliance.

Post employment follow up helps successful job seekers keep their jobs.
For additional education, hard skills training, and certifications, interested individuals are referred to Innovative Health Care Institute, Bread for Life, Athens Technical College, WorkSource Northeast Georgia, the College Factory, and others.  

Please complete our intake form in its entirety. This will help EADC connect you with job placement opportunities.
