Job Center is a Great Resource for Local Job Seekers
updated March 25, 2020
As a result of sudden lay-offs and business closures because of COVID-19, individuals may be faced with the reality of new employment.
The Job Center of Wisconsin is a good option to consider, starting with the website: https://jobcenterofwisconsin.com/.
Browsers may start a search by job title (like accountant) or by city/zip code in the upper right corner of the Job Center’s website.
Other resources for both employers and job seekers can be found at http://wisconsinjobcenter.org/otherassistance/default.htm
Reflective topics for employers and job seekers include recruitment, employee retention, workforce training, plan a career, training and education, and look for a job.
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) is closing Job Centers across the state starting Wednesday, March 25th. This includes the St. Croix Valley Job Center in River Falls, Wisconsin which serves the Greater St. Croix Valley.
As an alternative, their staff will be offering over-the-phone appointments to assist people who are searching for jobs, creating an account on the Job Center’s website, or utilizing online tools. Please call (715) 836-5156 to make an appointment for over-the-phone support for job search assistance.
Please consider the Job Center of Wisconsin as a good starting point.
