“Thank you for all your help and the connection you helped me make with the Dislocated Worker Program.” 

That’s what one grateful recipient of a Good Jobs Now call told a CareerForce staff person this summer. Every day CareerForce Job Service Staff have conversations with Minnesotans who are looking for work – and not aware of the many no cost career exploration and job search resources available to them. 

The Good Jobs Now calling campaign has already reached out to more than 80,000 Minnesotans receiving unemployment benefits. In every conversation, staff share information about CareerForce resources that could help them find employment.
