We’re committed to providing career and financial coaching and helping people find jobs that help them reach their goals.

Career Coaching

Each Cincinnati Works Member receives professional coaching designed to help make employment easier to find, keep, and succeed at.

Our coaches are experienced, compassionate professionals who have helped thousands of your neighbors identify their strengths and goals while honing the skills they need to succeed in the workplace.

Our coaches want to help you:

  • Assess your strengths, weaknesses, ambitions, challenges
  • Address challenges, connect with additional services, assess progress, plan next steps
  • Determine your goals and develop a plan with practical steps to reach them

Employment Connection

In addition to preparing our Members to be excellent additions to any team, Cincinnati Works partners with more than 75 regional employers who believe in our mission and know the value of helping people improve their lives.

Members can apply in our offices, online, or at job fairs. Our partners and dedicated staffing specialists will work to find positions that will help them reach their goals.

We partner with companies who support their people and believe in our mission, including those in the Beacon of Hope Business Alliance who employ people with criminal records, felony convictions, or who are returning citizens.
