FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA, January 28, 2023 –
We have a problem in the Bay Area.
Tech companies can’t find enough salespeople to meet demand – there are tens of thousands of unfilled sales positions across the region.
Yet, in untapped communities and communities of color, we are seeing soaring unemployment.
Now we have a solution…
All Stars Helping Kids is excited to announce the launch of our Re:Work Training Bay Area Program, a new comprehensive career training, and placement program focused on tech sales. The re:work Bay Area program helps raise the floor for untapped talent in Black and LatinX communities by providing better incomes for better outcomes.
Companies win by having access to a diverse pool of qualified candidates that are empowered with a growth mindset.
And young people in untapped and overlooked communities gain meaningful full-time employment with starting salaries up to $67,000.
This is how you disrupt the cycle of poverty!
Candidates selected to join the Re:Work Training Bay Area Program receive:
- Twelve weeks of free training
- Up to 65 hours of professional development
- A resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile
- Interview preparation and tailored advice
Graduates see an average increase in income of over 300% and $3.92 is returned to the community in income for every $1 spent. Re:Work Training Bay Area – creating workplaces where potential is worth as much as pedigree.
