Opened in 1988 as one if the nation’s first non-residential centers, the Philadelphia Job Corps Center is located in the former Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot at 2810 S 20th St Bldg. 12 Philadelphia, PA.
The Job Corps program was created during the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 as part of Johnson’s War on Poverty and Great Society initiatives that sought to expand economic and social opportunities for Americans, especially minorities and the poor. Job Corps is one of the oldest social programs in the federal government today. A product of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the Job Corps was first set up by Sargent Shriver, a member of the Kennedy family who ran many of Johnson’s social programs. Shriver modeled the Job Corps on the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s, which provided room, board, and employment to thousands of unemployed people.
The first National Director of the Job Corps program was Dr. S. Stephen Uslan, who was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson and reported directly to Sargent Shriver. The current national director of the Office of Job Corps is Lenita Jacobs-Simmons The Job Corps program is currently authorized under Title I-C of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998.
Management Training Corporation (MTC) is the nation’s premier leading Job Corps operator. Since 1981, MTC has been teaching and training young people to be prepared for the workforce. This intense and highly-successful training is done through the Department of Labor’s Job Corps program. MTC trained 12,680 students in 2016 in a variety of fields including healthcare, construction, technology, and business.

“On behalf of our University, I would like to say how pleased we are with the relationship we have with e-Hired. We have received positive feedback from our students, some telling us they were easily able to get a job, while others have said they love receiving the leads on a daily basis. From an administrative perspective, e-Hired (specifically Frank Whelan) is very customer focused, easy to work with, and very responsive whenever a questions arises.
As an on-line University with students all over the world, I can’t reach out into the community and chat with employers about our students and how they may be a good fit for their organization. The e-Hired platform provides me a way to at least help students – wherever they are – identify job openings in their area. Definitely a value-added tool for our University.”

“I have been using E-Hired with two school groups for over a year now. I find it extremely useful for student retention, employer relations, and student focus on the goal of employment. As the software continues to update it only gets better. Frank and his team of technicians are responsive and open to improvement and customization based on school needs. For my first school I saw an immediate increase of 5% employment just due to the use of the E-hired in the first two months of use. I would not want to work at a school which did not have this tool.”

“Our lucky day when we found e-hired. Frank Whelan has worked with our company in training and customizing the program for the needs of our company. I like so many things about this program but my favorite is for the student that doesn’t think there are any jobs available. As they see jobs coming into their email everyday it gives them hope, specific places to apply and makes the job search so much easier. For our WIOA contract, we are required to help young adults understand Labor Market information. This is labor market information in real time.”
We love E-hired.

“I am writing to let you know that I couldn’t be happier with the services that e-hired.com has provided the Career Services staff here at ASI Career Institute. The students and graduates have commented that they are really pleased that they receive job alerts daily that directly match their field of training. I have included the addition of the e-hired.com service as part of my gainful employment action plan and it has greatly assisted with my placement and retention goals I have set for the Career Services staff. Overall, I am very pleased with the ease of service and the overall positive outcomes since I have signed up ASI as a client. I now have all students and grads create a profile immediately and it’s very easy. Thank you e-hired.com!”

“I love the daily emails. I work at MedExpress after graduating from ASI. I have my certifications as a Medical Assistant, EKG technician and also Phlebotomist. I took the position as the Front Office Assistant to get my foot in the door for a great company. I will be moving up within the company very shortly here and becoming a Medical Assistant and transferring to a location that is 3 miles down the street from my house. I am a full-time employee and working 3 long day a week. Due to still having 4 days off a week, I am looking at applying for an additional part-time or casual position to help bring more money home to my children. As we all know, children aren’t cheap and neither are their activities. I appreciate everything I learned at ASI Career Tech along with the daily emails that e-hired is providing me. Once I find that perfect casual or part time fit I will be right on it!”
