Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to pay to train with Talent Connect?

No. Talent Connect has received initial funding from a private family foundation. Talent Connect will access public funding to provide support to trainees through sources such as Vocational Rehabilitation, Department of Mental Health, and disability  resource boards in local counties.

Will I get paid during the training?

Each participating employer makes this decision. Some training sites may pay trainees on a temp-to-hire basis, others may choose not to do this until a trainee is hired as an employee.

Am I guaranteed a job after the training?

Jobs are not guaranteed but our partner employers want to hire our graduates and Talent Connect will work with all of our  successful trainees to help them find work in the industry. All trainees who complete the program will receive a certificate from the employer.

What if I already have experience in manufacturing/distribution?

Having prior experience one of the industries is great! Instead of doing a training program, you can be a candidate for direct hire. We'll work with our partnering businesses to find positions available for to apply.
