Employment & Training Services

Who We Are

Here at Restoring the Years Employment & Training Services, we are dedicated to helping you fulfill your career goals. Whether you are seeking full-time or part-time employment, we can help. We will provide you with the training you need to be successful in your job search and secure the job you desire. Finding permanent employment for ex-offenders, disabled veterans, and the long-term unemployed is our specialty! We believe in you and look forward to helping you toward your goals.

When we began, we were solely based out of the Houston Metroplex. In the last year, we’ve expanded to start working in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex as well. We’ve worked tirelessly to vet employers in both the Houston and DFW business communities and we have cultivated relationships with employers so that job placement is a breeze when it comes to the varied backgrounds of the individuals we seek to place.
What We Do
As part of our dedication to help you secure the job you desire, we offer several services to help you towards that goal.

Job Readiness Training - The degree of job readiness training that is needed, if any, varies from person to person. As such, we offer various types of instruction, such as:
  • Electronic/Paper Job Application Training
  • Resume Training
  • Interview Training
  • Job Search Assistance
  • Preparing a cover and thank you letters
  • Work focused career exploration
  • Training in effective job seeking
  • Instruction in work place expectations

Job Placement - We assess the skills of each individual client to determine what skills they bring to the table as well as what qualities the various companies we partner with are looking for. Through this we match clients with the best possible employer and help them through the remainder of the job placement process until a successful placement is made.

Job Coaching - We have certified job coaches that use structured intervention techniques to help the employee learn to perform job tasks to the employer's specifications and to learn the interpersonal skills necessary to be accepted as a worker at the job site and in related community contacts. In addition to job-site training, our job coaching includes related assessment, job development, counseling, advocacy, and other services needed to maintain the employment. ​  

Job Development  - Job Development is one of the most important steps in the job search process. It is a targeted plan of action. The amount of detail needed in the plan can vary from person to person as we all require and desire different things. During the job development stage, we not only learn about what you desire in the career you are seeking, but also what skills, interests, and preferences you bring to the table as well as any supports you might need. We match this information with what we've already learned about the businesses and employers within the community that you might seek employment with.

Post-Hire Support - We understand that sometimes support is still necessary even after a job is secured. With this understanding in mind, we will continue to offer you support should you need it even after you have started on your new employment journey. If you should have questions, concerns, or even problems with your new employer or about the job in general, please don't hesitate to call.
