Attend a ReBoot Information Session to learn more about grant details, eligibility, application and training opportunities from a ReBoot coach. The Reboot coach will provide application forms and more information about next steps. There are regular ReBoot Information Sessions scheduled at each WorkSource center.
ReBoot Information Sessions take place every two weeks or so. Find the WorkSource center closest to you and let them know you’re interested.
All ReBoot candidates must first be registered with WorkSource. The ReBoot application forms ask for more information about your education and employment history. You will also be asked to share your resume. Once the ReBoot coach reviews your information, they will contact you about next steps.
Program applications can take as little as an hour to complete, depending on the accessibility of your job history information.
If it seems like you might be a good fit for the program, the ReBoot coach will contact you to learn more about you and your goals. The interview can happen in person, at a WorkSource office or over the phone.
If you are a good fit, the ReBoot coach will schedule a readiness interview for as soon as possible, depending on your availability.
After your application and readiness interview, you will be flagged for ReBoot enrollment or referred to other services. If selected for ReBoot, you must complete informed consent and online Baseline Information Form for the DOL Research & Evaluation Study. Once these are complete, you will be randomly assigned (50% into ReBoot services and 50% into control group). Those in the control group will be referred to other services. If you aren’t selected for ReBoot, don’t worry – WorkSource and the community have many other programs that may be beneficial to you.
Your program enrollment will be determined within a week or so of your application to the program. You may be enrolled in ReBoot or referred to other services.
Once selected to the program, your career coach will work with you to map your career and develop a career plan – identifying the job you want and all the steps it will take to get there.
Career planning and mapping is a core part of the ReBoot program and will be initiated within a week or so of your program enrollment.
