The Land of Lincoln Workforce Alliance, housed at the Illinois workNet™ Center, will assist in exploring training options, provide expertise with your job search and employer outreach.
For Job Seekers
A variety of services are available which include: career counseling, financial aid for education and training, personalized career plans, on-line job search assistance including Illinois Job Link and Internet job listings, resume development, referrals to community services and job referral. The workNet™ Center is equipped with up-to-date computers, high speed Internet access, resume paper, printers, fax machines and copiers to conduct an effective job search.
Interview rooms, job seeker outreach and wage incentives for hiring eligible job seekers are some of the services available through direct hire or on-the-job training programs. On-the- job training (OJT) provides the opportunity for employers to find workers who could become job ready with additional training.
