Taking a strengths-based approach to employment services can not only help clients achieve their career goals, but also improve program outcomes. This approach helps mitigate barriers like limited English proficiency, lack of formal work experience, or lack of U.S. credentials, and it empowers clients as decision-makers in the job search process. Take this e-learning module to learn concrete tips you can use to help clients know and use their strengths as they progress towards their career goals.

After completing this 25- to 30-minute module, you will be able to:

  1. Define a strengths-based approach to employment services and articulate how it can benefit you and your clients;
  2. Identify strengths-based questions to ask clients during one-on-one conversations;
  3. Design job readiness class objectives and activities that promote clients’ strengths; and
  4. Help clients leverage their strengths to overcome barriers as they pursue their career goals.
