“If I saw WorkReadyNH on a resume, I’d be very interested in the person. Soft skills is the piece that we need most. We can train for the skills needed to do the job, yet soft skills is where we fall short.”
Jean Wetherby
HR Manager, Whelen Engineering

of resumes are never read by a human

“I came into the program lost, I was really looking for direction. I hadn’t been in the workforce for 13 years and needed some skills on how to reenter it. This program gave me confidence, self-worth, and soft skills to go forth with finding a job.”
