Employment Ready provides free one-on-one job readiness services to anyone who is unemployed or under-employed in the Omaha Metro, Council Bluffs or Fremont areas.

Meet the Employment Ready team:

Sherri KallonDuring her time with Goodwill Employment Ready Specialist Sherri Kallon has found a strong passion for working with young adults in our community. Sherri’s caseload can start with one participant and may ultimately grow to also assist their aunts, uncles, cousins, etc., because they can feel how much she cares. She believes Employment Ready is an amazing program because it helps people change their lives without having to go through red tape. She enjoys being able to see clients gain employment skills, complete a new resume, update their cover letter, or provide a job lead all within a few hours. Contact Sherri at 402.231.1977 or [email protected]
