CORE PARTNER FAQ’s
Encourage candidates to RSVP for an Information Session or submit an Interest Form online at www.work-now.org/getconnected/Interest Form.
There are convenient locations throughout the Denver metro area with a variety of dates and times each month. Session information is posted monthly in the CORE Project Management System Portal on the “Events” tab. This information is also shared publicly on the WORK-NOW.org website under Events.
Once the WORKNOW Interest Form is completed and received, the candidate will be assigned a WORKNOW Career Navigator. The Plan of Advancement is when the Career Navigator meets with the candidate about their current experience/job interests, short and long-term goals, barriers to obtain and retain employment, and how to advance.
The assigned WORKNOW Career Navigator will help candidates with job placement, referrals to training (if needed) and connect the candidate to support services. The candidate is ready to apply!
The assigned WORKNOW Career Navigator will provide the following as needed: work boots, PPE, gift cards for gas and tools, or bus tickets for the first week of employment.
Participants are encouraged to confirm employment immediately. Career Navigators will follow up with candidates at the program 30 day, 60 day and 90 day milestones.
The training partner notifies CWI regularly once a candidate completes training. CWI staff will then notify the assigned Career Navigator.
A participant that is working in the construction industry will have the option to receive additional post placement supportive services through WorkLife Partnership.

The process begins with visiting the Retention Navigator Form on the project management system (PMS) portal.
Once enrolled, WORKNOW participants will receive weekly information on training, open jobs and upcoming events.
WORKNOW Career Navigators or CWI can initiate referrals to a training partner via the Training Referral Form or PMS. Career Navigators are responsible for ensuring the participant is enrolled in WORKNOW prior to signing them up for that training.

The Career Navigator will share available job information via email or call WORKNOW candidates directly to review the candidate’s qualifications and interest. If interested, the candidate’s resume will be sent to the employer and then the employer may select to interview.
