Latent Resources is dedicated to empowering the unemployed, the under-employed, and the vocationally frustrated by offering motivation in the form of encouragement; personal development by means of partner-mentors; and opportunity exploration through networking.
Empowering through encouragement is at the heart of our motivational efforts. We know the demoralizing nature of being unemployed; often feelings of “being worthless” or “without purpose”.
Each person, who comes through our doors, is examined to discover their own worth, their innate personal value apart from degrees, job titles, or salaries.
Mentoring, personal refinement, coaching, proper communication, & resume-building are value-added features we offer to our community, as well as many technical aspects of entrepreneurial behavior, job seeking, and contract work.
Learning the art of relationship is essential to anyone’s success. Our focus on connecting with others goes beyond meeting people & looking for references. Rather it’s a holistic approach, which relies on ‘Motivation’ & ‘Development’ to bringing value to others, while including social media techniques & one-on-one brain-storming.
