Job Hunting? Guilford Parent Academy Can Help!

Dec. 11, 2019 – Landing that dream job can be a reality, not only a holiday wish. As part of its effort to support families holistically, Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) provides all families with access to Brainfuse JobNow, which offers live one-on-one job search help, online interview practice from trained job coaches, and resume and cover letter assistance from trained resume experts.

The JobNow resources offer foundational, career-enhancing skills to job seekers, along with test preparation (including the High School Equivalency and the U.S. Citizenship tests) and a unique academic skills center featuring live, online tutors. Built for the modern family, these services are accessible whenever is most convenient, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“This holiday season and throughout the year, we know many parents are hoping to find a new job that will help them support their family,” said Kimberly Funderburk, director of GPA. “The learning doesn’t stop when we become parents. In fact, it is just beginning. Our resources are here to help parents thrive, both professionally and personally.”

To access the resources, parents need to create a free GPA account. To learn more, click here, email parentacademy@gcsnc.com or call 336-279-4924.
