My professional purpose consists of being an educator that excels to provide adult education and career exploration services to the unemployed, under employed, traditional students, non-traditional adult learners, TANF, EBT/SNAP recipients, youth, ex-offenders, and adults ages 50+ that would like to re-enter the workforce. Job seekers have the potential of being business savvy. Business Savvy is a mentality. It is your confidence along with your unique skill set that employers are looking for in today’s workforce. Potential employers need to know what kind of skills and qualifications you can bring to their organization. Bottom line, you need to “B $avvy” in everything that you do!
