Training program to help people get Vegas jobs

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

A new training program is aiming to connect people with Vegas jobs.

Source Point Training has created a 10-week program professional, set to kick off in Vegas, that will feature two high-impact training weekends opportunity facilitated by a Master Performance Coach, 10-weeks of one-on-one coaching with certified professional coaches and opportunity to network with people who are driven by the common aspiration and goal: “to generate extraordinary results in all areas of life.”

The program begins the weekend of March 30 in Las Vegas, NV, one of the most traveled-to places in the world.

“Students and professionals alike share the burden of a stagnant job market,” says Barbara Fagan, a master coach and co-founder of the California-based firm. “One way to stand apart from the crowd is to cultivate skills in leadership and relationship management.” She points to studies conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Association Resource Centre, Inc. that show corporations are turning to professional coaching as a means to acquire “stand out skills.”

“Anecdotally, we know that managers are under increased pressure to generate more productivity with smaller workforces,” says Fagan. “Naturally, when a company begins to hire – as they all eventually will do, managers will be very selective. The underlying task for professionals and candidates is gaining the skills they need to keep preferred positions within an organization or make a successful hire.

Source Point’s programs are also open to college students and professionals in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside, and Phoenix.
