Agency Contact Information
Career Resources, Inc.
Career Resources Inc., or CRI, is unique in our sole focus on workforce training and development for disadvantaged and low-income jobseekers. We understand that our customers in this work are both jobseekers AND employers. CRI brings extensive experience in both human services and private industry to our approach and we combine needed elements of each, infusing all programming with effective case management and support and the best attitudinal job-readiness training, basic education, and recognized workforce credentials. For jobseekers, our philosophy is to challenge people to examine their own behavior and identify their own strengths and skills; explain to them their options, in terms of jobs and training available and in identifying and accessing training; and to support them as they try out new skills. For employers, our approach is to understand their needs and to match them with jobseekers who will meet them. Tools in this are a team of job developers who explain available tax credits and workers who have been through CRI programs and are certified with the National Career Readiness Certificate. This approach has earned us partnerships with the CT Business and Industry Association, Chambers of Commerce, and countless employers. CRI was founded in 1995, when it spun off from the region’s Workforce Investment Board in order to better provide direct services. Today CRI offers a menu of more than 17 programs throughout Connecticut with offices in Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, and Waterbury. CRI has a staff of more than 100 workers and offers competitive salary and benefits.
