Many recovering addicts and alcoholics struggle to navigate the daunting world of employment and education once they get sober, especially with lapsed work history and negative legal records. The purpose of the Susan and Leonard Nimoy Career Center is to empower our clients to have a purposeful future as they move through the course of treatment into the world of work. Residents learn how to transition successfully through professional career counseling, resume building, educational advisement, interview skills, and job placement. For those seeking to clarify a new career path, in-depth assessments are provided to identify residents’ talents, interests, and values that can optimize the chance for a satisfying future.
An integral component of the Career Center is the Internship/Externship Program. Residents learn new skills while receiving a stipend for three to six months, across a wide array of departments within Beit T’Shuvah and in businesses all over Los Angeles. From the Clinical team to Creative Matters Agency, Beit T’Shuvah provides countless career opportunities for residents to explore. Over 80% of Beit T’Shuvah staff members are former residents and many of them began their work here as interns. When residents want to pursue passions in fields outside of Beit T’Shuvah, the Externship program makes it possible by offering paid, entry-level positions at a variety of businesses. Both types of on-the-job training opportunities provide a valuable means to help bridge the unemployment gap and re-integrate residents, now armed with meaningful work experience, into their communities.
For more information about the Internship/Externship Program please contact the Career Center at 310 204-5200 Ext. 217.
