Living Classrooms Comes to Shaw

Over 1,000 people have signed up at the Clark Trailer on 7th and P looking for jobs.

While Clark has hired workers for work at the CityMarket at O and others have been referred to and  hired by Clark at CityCenterDC, the need.extends far beyond the hiring capacity of these two construction projects. 

Roadside looked beyond construction and focused on the 400+  full-time jobs that will need to be filled at CityMarket at O's Giant Food Store (opening late 2013) and its 182-room Cambria Suites Hotel (opening early 2014).

Roadside Development and Clark partnered with Living Classrooms to provide Shaw's first 4-week job readiness training session for 18 students.  The sessions included class sessions on goal setting, resume writing and interviewing as well as exposure to various professions and opportunities in the retail and health care sectors. 

Highlights of the classes included presentations and question and answer sessions with representatives of Giant Food Store, Clark Construction and HomeCare Partners.
