Lane County Workforce Services is looking for job seekers whose jobs were lost due to the Holiday Farm Fire. The organization can help them either become employed to assist with restoration and recovery of the land upriver or, if their skill set is different, help with finding other employment.
Workforce Services is part of an alliance of services known as WorkSource Lane, which is funded by the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act of 2014.
One of the features available is an opportunity to work one-on-one with a Career Advisor to enhance job searches and direct career paths. Whether unemployed or employed, want to update a resume, or brush up on interview skills, a Career Advisor can help.
It also offers support for those who lost a job because of COVID or the Holiday Farm Fire. Check out its Dislocated Worker Program.
