I’m a Job Seeker

We’re NOT the unemployment office. Rather, we’re the ones who help you find work!

But we don’t “get you a job” Only you can do that. We’re here to help you obtain the skills, resources and support you need for employment in today’s job market.

Our services are highly personalized and centered around you, your personal strengths, and the direction you’d like to take your job search.





What’s different about today’s job market?

The fast paced, global economy requires:

  • New skills
  • Different mindset
  • Life-long commitment to training
  • Comfort with constant change

What are employers
looking for?

People who know how to:

  • Communicate effectively
  • Work in teams
  • Think critically
  • Apply knowledge
  • Constantly adjust to new technologies

Industries you might think are “dead” – like manufacturing – are actually alive and thriving in the Great Lakes Bay Region. But they and others now need people with different skills than ever before to be globally competitive.
