Employ Up Career Expo! November 16th

Sign Up. Skill Up. Employ Up.

Employ Up assists you on your path to a meaningful career with free skills training, job search support and access to the many high-tech companies that want talent like you.

If you are an underemployed Central Indiana resident in search of a new or better career, Employ Up is for you.

Employ Up was the answer for Indianapolis-area residents Tammy Jones, Lesly Duncan and Carl Gibbs who each experienced a different journey from unemployment to a new career opportunity.

“This program has exceeded my expectations. I feel that I will have a job in my field at the end of the summer. I will get what I deserve.”

Shirley Grisby

“I worked in a job I had no passion for. I want to get into an IT field and this is a springboard into what I really want to do. I needed everything I gained during these five weeks of Career Prep.”

Andre Taylor

“I want to transition from pharmacy to nursing and there are some barriers to reaching that goal. I got stuck in a rut but I am now motivated to keep my eye on my goal.”

Christian Coleman
