Those struggling to find jobs in a tough economy may be able to find the path to a new career through the Western Indiana WorkOne, 17 W. National St., Brazil.
At a recent Clay County Chamber of Commerce meeting, WorkOne Business Consultant Brad Trusler discussed adult education programs that are or soon will be available to Clay County residents, including a computer skills program, Certified Nursing Assistant training, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machinery and also a training program for welding.
The education programs are a part of the GED+ program.
According to Marketing and Communications representative Joe Frank, some of the training programs require applicants to meet various income requirements, but there are no income requirements to seek general help from WorkOne.
"If you're having a hard time finding a job in your field, we can help you find another area of interest that you may also enjoy," Frank told The Brazil Times. "We have helped a lot of people further develop their skill set to adapt to the changing job market and help them make their skills more relevant to today's job market."
The Clay County WorkOne is open Monday-Wednesday and Friday, from 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., and Thursday, from 10 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
The office is closed Saturday and Sunday.
