Jubilee Jobs' singular focus is helping people from low-income backgrounds find jobs. Some applicants have sizable gaps in employment history; some have no history at all. Jubilee Jobs provides a supportive community that guides applicants through the process of securing and retaining a position. This includes resume development, online application assistance, and mock interviews. Participants are also encouraged to move beyond entry-level employment by pursuing additional training or education. Jubilee Jobs connects individuals to employment as quickly as possible so that they can attain financial stability which in turn will let them address other life challenges. For 40 years, it has helped over 27,000 people obtain employment, and last year alone 241 individuals secured positions, including people struggling with homelessness or returning from incarceration. Work for sustenance, dignity, and hope: it's a journey worth pursuing – and supporting.
