Career Counseling
The Innovation Lab in Northeast Park Hill offers business and career training services for adults. Graduates of courses and workshops often earn a certificate of completion and they may include that accomplishment on resumes and applications.

The Innovation Lab focuses on four aspects of career and business readiness through individual coaching and group workshops:

  • Career Planning: resume and cover letter writing, conducting a job search, preparing for interviews
  • Entrepreneurial Counseling: key steps to starting a business
  • Financial Literacy: money management skills 
  • Technology Training: online skills plus Microsoft Office programs

Participants learn to navigate a job search and also how to balance the responsibilities of work, family and other duties once they start down a career path. Many candidates from the program have the tools to be a reliable staff member who is eager to learn a new job in a new industry.
