Operation ABLE’s held its annual fundraiser on June 9th to support our community of job seekers, the underemployed, those in career transition, and military veterans who are committed and eager to work.
The theme of this year’s event was “Together We Move Forward,” to acknowledge and celebrate our students, our impactful employer and service provider partners, and Operation ABLE’s compassionate and expert staff. We also want to acknowledge and thank our nonprofit and government partners for helping to make our success possible. In addition, the event enabled us to spotlight our full complement of computer skills training programs and the ‘life-changing” impact on students that have successfully graduated from our programs. Just as importantly, this event enables us to thank and recognize our very generous sponsors and donors who make our job training and student success possible.

What is Remote Work?
Remote work describes an environment in which employees can work from home or any other location outside their company’s physical office. Previously, working remotely in this way would have been challenging — mainly because of technology and resource constraints. Now, collaboration tools like ZOOM have helped bridge that technology gap, enabling more people to work remotely and collaborate on the go.
Operation ABLE’s Medical Office Training Program – a great start for jobseekers seeking a healthcare-related career path.
Now is an exciting time for motivated job seekers to consider a career in the healthcare field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, five out of the 20 fastest-growing industries for the next decade are in the healthcare and social assistance sector, the fastest-growing major sector in the economy. With continued updates being made to healthcare policy in the U.S., the variety and volume of jobs and services will continue to grow in hospitals, hospital networks, nursing homes, home health agencies, small health clinics, and health-related nonprofits. Within those organizations, entry-level jobs in health administration include positions in human resources, finance and operations, admissions departments, and more. Most positions will require a solid foundation in computer skills, as well as good communication and interpersonal skills. Additionally, a range of flexible work arrangements is available in health administration jobs, such as part-time, full-time, alternative schedule, and remote positions.

When the ABLE Beginnings program was conceived in 2011 it was to provide basic computer skills training to veterans or older employees who had either been downsized or retired after 30 + years of employment. To their credit, many of them realized that to re-enter the job force they needed to update their proficiency and use of basic Microsoft tools such as MS Word and Excel.
