Missouri Job Center Announces Return to In-Person Workshops

If you have been working online with the Missouri Job Center to learn skills necessary to find a job, you’ll soon be back to face-to-face meetings with the MJC staff.

The in-person workshops will resume in May. Masking and social distancing will be required of all participants and you will have to call and reserve a spot in the workshop.

 “As occupancy restrictions ease, we are excited to offer a variety of workshops to help job seekers land their dream job,” Sally Payne, Interim Director of Workforce Development for the City of Springfield, said in a statement. “We look forward to resuming these workshops in May that were put on hold last year during the pandemic.”

The workshops will take place at the 2900 East Sunshine location and are free to the public. Courses include Online Applications and Resumes, Interview Processes, Budgeting 101, Veteran’s Resources, Career Exploration, and a workshop for those with past legal issues.

 “This is a job seeker’s market right now, and there are more jobs than people to fill them,” Payne said. “That makes this a ideal time to find a really great job.”
