HIRING THE BEST CANDIDATE
“Twin Cities R!SE works with companies to find the right TCR participant for open positions. Our coordinators use specialized interview methods and assessments to select candidates who will meet your specific requirements and provide quality service.”
— ISABELLE DAY, CEO | QUALITY INGREDIENTS CORPORATION
"I came to Twin Cites R!SE after being incarcerated, and it was the best thing to happen to me outside of meeting my wife. Before coming to TCR, I was a lost man. I had lost my then wife, my job, my home, and my life savings. I decided to give TCR a try. The course that helped me the most was Personal Empowerment."
"I'm happy that I have the job, and that it’s consistent and it pays me. It pays my bills. Before TCR, I had low-self esteem. I didn’t think highly of myself, so I never tried. Personal Empowerment has helped me to make better decisions and not let my feelings control my actions all the time. Everything that they taught me in empowerment has helped me on the job and in life."
"TCR is a place for new beginnings. It’s a place for structure, discipline. and encouragement. TCR is not just a place where you come and sit in a class. TCR is a place of opportunity. It’s a place for you to discover what your skills are. It’s a place for you to have people help you build upon your skills. It’s a place to meet new people. It’s not just a learning institution."
