OIC of South Florida
The City of Lauderhill and OIC of South Florida (OIC-SFL), a nonprofit workforce development organization, partnered to offer FREE Career Readiness Workshops to Lauderhill residents. As a member of the Prosperity Broward initiative, OIC-SFL is humbled and honored to be “on the move” in economically distressed communities to offer its residents soft-skill trainings to increase their marketability in today’s workforce. The workshops covered various topics such as resume building, networking to find your next job opportunity, and identifying your ideal career path
One of the workshops held in November hosted students from the Junior Achievement Program at Lauderhill 6-12 Stem -Med Magnet School. The students were matched with ideal jobs based on their interests through a career assessment, learned about teamwork, as well as participated in acting out real life workplace situations. Fifteen (15) students were given a small taste of what it takes to make it in today’s labor market.
Due to the success of this initiative, OIC-SFL will be offering the workshops again in the Spring of 2020.
