local resources for the unemployed
From Diane Stafford’s ever-so-useful column on kansascity.com today:
Help for job hunters is close to home
Out of work and don’t know where to turn?
Check out a new web site launched this week that can point you to job-search and job-retraining resources near you.
The site is a service of the AFL-CIO and Working America. But it’s not just for union members. It’s for anyone who’s looking for work.(WorkingAmerica is the AFL-CIO affiliate created for workers who aren’t union members.)
The sponsoring organizations call UnemploymentLifeLine.com “a Yellow Pages meets Wikipedia” for the unemployed. It works when you enter your Zip Code, and a host of nearby agencies and services pop up.
