Residents looking for employment are getting a helping hand from the Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend. Workforce Solutions is helping South Texas residents find a career with a new four-day class.

Organizers say it will focus on essential skills needed in any work environment. The "Career Ready Work-Force Certification Program" was created based on what employers told Workforce Solutions they are looking for in an employee.

Communication, punctuality, and teamwork are just some of the lessons taught in the class. Students say they are excited to put these skills to work.

At the end of the program, a graduation is held and students receive continuing education credits to Del Mar and Coastal Bend College.
