We would not recommend groups because each person likely has different job search skills to learn.  One person may need help completing a job application that he can copy when applying for jobs.  Another may need help describing his justice system involvement and efforts to move his life forward.  Further, people learn best by working alongside of an employment specialist rather than talking about how to do things. Rather than discussing how to complete job applications, an employment specialist and job seeker would work on job applications together until the job seeker knew how to do that on his own.
