Employment Assistance

Capitol Hill Housing offers our residents the opportunity to meet with a job coach for assistance towards developing their professional career. Coaches are local senior level professionals with management and hiring experience who can help craft resumes and cover letters, identify opportunities, develop interview skills and assist with other employment needs. Meetings typically occur twice a month and may be scheduled during or outside of typical business hours. If you are a CHH resident interested in meeting with a job coach to work on finding a new or different job opportunity, contact Joy Levien at or (206) 434-6483 for more information
