Wanna work here? Call 425-258-6378 to sign up for help filling out a job application for Boeing.

Got a press release today from Rick Van Cise at Employment Security who says WorkSource Everett is holding classes on how to get hired at Boeing. That’s the good news. The bad news is the April Classes are already full. If you want to get into the classes on May 6th or 13th, get on the phone now and call 425-258-6378. They take calls starting at 8am but the classes are filling up fast. Here’s the Press Release

EVERETT – More aerospace jobs are concentrated in Snohomish County than anywhere in the world, and the number is growing. But getting the attention of Boeing and other aerospace companies can be daunting for some jobseekers.

“For every 100 applicants, Boeing screens out about 75 of them, often because they didn’t know how to accurately describe their skills,” said Employment Security Commissioner Paul Trause. “WorkSource is turning that trend around by teaching job seekers how to develop résumés and applications that get screeners’ attention.”

As recruiting ramps up, WorkSource is expanding its unique partnership with Boeing to teach applicants the résumé and interview skills needed to get noticed. WorkSource centers in Everett and Auburn are increasing the number of free workshops to once a week or more. Boeing-trained job coaches will be on hand to help applicants navigate the hiring process.

The program is already working. Some 250 who applied at Boeing but never heard back were all offered jobs after seeking help from Everett WorkSource.

“They were instrumental in getting me the chance I needed,” said Michael Iacono of Everett, who got help with his résumé and learned about training opportunities.

Michael doesn’t own a computer, but he used the free computers at Everett WorkSource to apply at Boeing, which takes applications only on-line. He was offered a job as an assembler-installer at the 737 plant in Renton.

Without WorkSource, he said, “I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today.”

The next aerospace workshop orientation session for jobseekers will be April 15, from 1 to 4 p.m., at Everett WorkSource, 3201 Smith Ave., Suite 413. Similar workshops continue every other week at the WorkSource centers in Mount Vernon and Tacoma.

WorkSource is a statewide partnership of Employment Security, other state agencies, local governments, colleges and nonprofit organizations that work together to provide free employment and training services to job seekers and employers. WorkSource can also help employers recruit and screen for qualified workers, apply for employment tax breaks and qualify for subsidized employee training.

Addresses and phone numbers are posted on go2worksource.com along with thousands of job listings, job-search tips and other valuable information.
