At Hotel California by the Sea Bellevue a large part of our mission is to adequately prepare our clients for positive life change(s) in their personal and professional lives. This mission is heavily supported by our Career Resource Center Program, which aims to provide educational and professional assistance and guidance to clients in our treatment program looking to reenter the workforce and / or pursue their education.
Due to the destruction that addiction often causes, many of our clients come into our addiction treatment program with a lack of confidence and positive work experience. Furthermore, many have ruined relationships with past employers and have failed academically and professionally due to their addiction(s). Teaching our clients how to transition back into everyday life in a positive way that supports their recovery and their personal goals is at the cornerstone of our Career Resource Center Program. To help our clients regain their confidence and ability to perform professionally the first step when a client comes to our Career Resource Center Program is for them to fill out a thorough set of evaluations that highlight their strengths, interests and passions. By finding out what our clients are passionate about we are able to guide them in the proper direction with the ongoing support and guidance of a career resource center specialist.
Our Career Resource Center Program provides assistance with resume building, mock interviews, interview etiquette and dress code, job placement as well as the facilitation of transportation to and from job interviews. We also help with the coordination of college campus tours and registering for financial aid and / or classes.
