Lake Mary, FL
- After months of research and preparation, the Christian HELP Foundation/Central Florida Employment Council (CFEC) formally announced plans to bolster the services they extend to job seekers. The Central Florida Jobs Initiative (CFJI) has been created to connect area employerswith job-ready and qualified candidates.

During a 90-minute information and networking session conducted at ITT Tech’s Lake Mary campus, representatives from local corporate and community organizations were provided information about the program’s background, structure, and desired deliverables. A keystone component of the initiative is a six-module training course that, among other topics, addresses effective job-seeking strategies. However, intrinsic in the training design is also the habitual implementation of performance excellence, throughout the job search and subsequent to the job offer. This simple, yet pivotal concept is at the core of each module and speaks to the initiative’s mission of “equipping and empowering job seekers to become excellent employees”.

Facilitated by Christian HELP Executive Director Sandi Vidal, the event was interactive and included a networking exercise that closely
simulates an activity that will be incorporated into the program’s training curriculum. At the conclusion, the five-member CFJI employment team had an opportunity to speak one-on-one with the nearly 70 registered guests in attendance.

The program is scheduled to launch in January 2013. For more information about opportunities for you or your organization to support the initiative, please contact us at (407) 796-3650.
