Youth Job-Seekers: Get Ready, Willing and Able

Posted in Recruitment at 8:55 am

The Manitowoc County Job Center is the “One-Stop Shop” for Manitowoc County youth in search of employment and education assistance, as well as local businesses looking to fill position vacancies. For almost 10 years the Manitowoc County Job Center has been helping youth find job openings, perfect resumes and job applications and practice interviewing skills.

All youth are encouraged to stop in at any time with employment questions or to simply make use of our free high-speed internet services. Lakeshore Technical College is also conveniently located on-site to answer any questions about taking the next steps towards college.

Eligible youth are able to take advantage of the intensive case management services of our Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Youth Program. Once enrolled in WIA, youth meet with a case manager on a regular basis to receive help in all areas mentioned above; plus: receive funding for training, transportation, and childcare and even take part in leadership activities and tours. For example, a group of several WIA Youth Program participants recently went on a guided tour of the Green Bay Holiday Inn City Center to explore daily activities involved with restaurant, hospitality and culinary careers.

Businesses looking to hire youth should also not hesitate to contact the Job Center. Why take a chance on recruiting employees on your own when you can be sure to find qualified, employment-ready youth who are working with our staff at the Job Center? We have plenty of young men and women with polished employment skills waiting to step into roles with your companies; whether it is just for the summer or for the rest of their careers. Companies of all sizes regularly use the Job Center for recruitment activities targeting all ages of job seekers.

Businesses and youth alike – stop by or call the Job Center with any questions. Or let us know how we can better serve the employment and education seeking youth of our community.

Job Center Youth Hours: M-F, 8 am-4:30 pm
