Ocean County PIC, Inc.'s goal is to offer quality career & training services while keeping our staff and community safe. All communication will be conducted over the phone, via email, virtually through Zoom or in person by appointment.
If you are interested in learning more about our services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be scheduled for our virtual orientation/information session.
Once you have contacted our office you will be given a date to attend our orientation/information session via Zoom. The orientation is virtual and you must have a valid email address to participate. Please be on time and if you choose to keep your camera on please make sure your surroundings and attire are appropriate. This is a scheduled group activity (approximately 45 minutes) that is a requirement for all customers seeking services. Our hope is that you will leave the orientation with a general understanding of the services provided by our agency and additional resources that you can use as you continue on your career pathway.
After attending the information session, if you are interested in meeting with a counselor or member of our business services team, you will be provided with all the information you need to get started.
Once you have completed orientation, you will be provided a link to a secure portal where you can complete and submit your application and eligibility documentation.
You will be in communication with our intake worker who will review your documentation and if necessary request additional documents and ask any additional questions to determine eligibility. After reviewing your eligibility documentation, it may be determined that you are not eligible for training services. There are services which do not require eligibility, such as job search, resume assistance, job fairs, etc. and you can schedule a time to meet with a member of our business services team to pursue those options.
Once determined eligible for training services you will be assigned to a career counselor who will contact you to schedule a virtual or in person employment first evaluation/assessment appointment and CASAS basic skill testing. In addition to eligibility our staff will also look at the suitability of an applicant for training. During your evaluation you and your counselor will discuss your educational background, work history and any barriers you are facing to obtaining employment and how they align with your current career goals. With the guidance of your counselor we hope that you will be able to identify an appropriate career path based on your skills, interests, and expectations.
