New Job Hunting ResourceDecember 7, 2020
December 2020 Update:
We have a new addition to JobNow – Live Unemployment Benefits Assistance. Live unemployment benefits coaches are available to help workers determine unemployment eligibility benefits using state and federal guidelines. Filling out the application and finding the right unemployment resources can be overwhelming. During this unprecedented time, it is our goal to help workers receive the benefits they are entitled to. This new feature is located on the homepage under the Career column. From there, you’re able to access both the live coaches as well as resources.
