Through the WYCO Works program and Workforce Partnership Initiative, those unemployed as a result of the pandemic can receive information and even training for more than 4,300 open jobs in Wyandotte County. The job opportunities span multiple industries such as manufacturing, healthcare and logistics, with an average wage above $25 / hour.
Over the next few months, every unemployed individual in Wyandotte County as a result of the pandemic will receive WYCO Works information on jobs and training in the mail. Those who are interested in a job are asked to set up a meeting at Workforce Partnership to set up a Kansas Works account, apply for a job of interest or talk to a career navigator about training options.
Workforce Partnership offers a wide variety of services including skills assessments, resume development, job search resources, partner agency referrals, tuition assistance, GED and ESL support and pre-vocational services.
If you meet with Workforce Partnership before the end of the year, you’ll receive a $25 VISA gift card. For more information or to set up an appointment contact Eliza Barr at 913-279-2650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
