Workforce training courses

Training courses and events to help dislocated workers get back to work

Recently laid off, having problems finding a good new job and balancing the checkbook? MU Extension Career Options can help displaced workers through this free two-day event. This practical, information-packed seminar features three different sessions on job search skills, including preparing a resume, interviewing, completing a job application and making a good impression on prospective employers; taking control of your finances, including adjusting to a new financial reality and finding ways to economize; and building essential workplace skills, such as interpersonal communication, teamwork, responsibility, enhancing your self-confidence and marketing yourself.

Attendees may attend some or all sessions. Breakfast and lunch are included. There’s no cost for displaced workers, but reservations are required by calling 800-392-2949 or emailing
