Unemployed due to COVID-19? Need money to pay bills? Want to switch careers or develop a new set of skills?
gener8tor, a Wisconsin-based company that helps entrepreneurs launch startups, in partnership with New North and Microsoft is rolling out a new, FREE program called Upskilling. Upskilling, an online program for NE Wisconsin residents, will allow you to learn skills for and access in-demand job opportunities.
Upskilling allows you to focus on a career in Customer Service or Sales. As part of the program you’ll learn about how to build a better resume or create one from scratch and prep for interviews. You’ll also receive expert mentorship and job-coaching, and participate in a job fair that will allow you to get back into the workforce or get a better paying job.
In the post-COVID world, all people–especially those from the hardest hit industries and the most vulnerable communities–will need to learn new skills to rejoin the workforce prepared for technical and tech-enabled roles that will be in even greater demand going forward. Together, we can help ensure people who have lost work due to the COVID-19 pandemic have the skills they need to pursue the jobs of today and tomorrow.
How the Program Works:
Once applicants apply and are accepted, they will spend 9 to 12 days in the accelerator program. The core of the curriculum is accessing the free content across Microsoft and LinkedIn Learning. While the individuals are pursuing their certificate, they will have concierge support to meet their goals based on the gener8tor’s accelerator model.
What People Will Receive:
Individuals who participate in a concierge, accelerator program will earn an industry-recognized Microsoft Certification as well as get benefits such as resume assistance, interview practice and introductions to leading employers in the New North region.
