LinkedIn is hosting around 75 homeless clients of InnVision Shelter Network in a job preparation clinic at its Mountain View headquarters on Friday, July 18.
The clinic aims to assist the clients with improving job interview skills and resumes and with setting up LinkedIn profiles. The clinic will be run by LinkedIn volunteers and serves as a collaboration between LinkedIn's "LinkedIn For Good" initiative and InnVision's NextGen Advisory Board.
InnVision Shelter Network's representatives said they hope that the clinic will help the organization's homeless yet job-ready clients recognize the right job opportunities and secure job offers.
Job preparation clinics for homeless clients serve as extensions of the organization's "Beyond the Bed" service model, which aims to help people acquire permanent residences. Representatives say the organization has an 80 percent success rate in restoring clients to self-sufficiency.
InnVision Shelter Network provides housing and support in 18 sites from San Jose to Daly City. The organization formed the NextGen Advisory Board earlier this year to provide further aid to homeless individuals and families throughout the Peninsula and Silicon Valley.
