Large Layoff Events:
The staff at Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services, Inc. (CMJTS) recognize that this is a difficult time for workers impacted by the scheduled layoffs occurring at your location. However, CMJTS would like you to know that you do not have to walk through this transition alone. Professional staff called “employment specialists” are here to guide the way. In addition, there are services available, free of charge, to help you along your journey to your next job.
CMJTS staff will provide Dislocated Worker Program services to those impacted by the layoff. There are no fees to participate, and the program offers opportunities for training, career counseling, résumé assistance, financial support, and more. State and federal grants fund this program. And, you can get started now!
Your employment specialist will help integrate your personal goals and our unique knowledge of the local labor market to assist you in a career change. The sooner you meet with a CMJTS employment specialist, the better!
The First Step – ENROLLMENT
CMJTS believes in an individualized approach to serving dislocated workers from the beginning of the enrollment process. Therefore, your ES will meet with you one-on-one in the CMJTS office location of your choice or onsite at your place of employment (if appropriate) until closure occurs. We will meet with you in person following safety guidelines or virtually (online) if preferred. Your ES wants to be accommodating and flexible.
