Whether you're looking for new employment opportunities or feel stuck in your current work environment, a local non-profit job placement organization is seeking to help you through an event in DeWitt County Wednesday.
Workforce Investment Solutions in Decatur will be holding an event Wednesday at the Clinton Richland Community College Education Center between 10 am and 2 pm. Larry Peterson explains it is a chance for anyone looking to advance their skills or find new opportunities to connect with them and begin the process to fast-track their career.
Peterson explains Workforce Investment Solutions is a federally funded program that seeks to bridge the gap between employers who need skilled workers and getting workers the skills to fill those available positions.
The economy has grown so much recently the market is almost a job seekers market with so many jobs available and not as many as people to fill positions. Peterson says it has created a shift that now employers are offering to train their employees.
Those open interviews in Clinton next week are Wednesday, February 27 at the Clinton Richland Community College Learning Center from 10 am to 2 pm. If you cannot make the event but would like to talk to someone at Workforce Investment Solutions, you can contact them by phone in Decatur at 217-875-8751 or stop into their office at 757 West Pershing Road in Decatur.
