Put the Unemployed Back on a Career Path
Through a Job-Driven National Emergency Grant awarded to the state of Illinois, we are partnering with the state to help train long-term unemployed workers for new jobs in high-demand industries, like IT.
For laid-off job seekers, we work with One-Stop Centers in Illinois to offer comprehensive IT career services:
- Needs assessment
- Career guidance
- Free training resulting in industry-recognized credentials such as: CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, CompTIA Project+, MCSA, CCNA, and ITIL
- Connections to paid work experience and full-time jobs
The services help both people new to IT and people with some IT experience. More than 100,000 IT jobs are open in Illinois. If you have customer service experience, are a problem solver or are tech savvy, consider working in information technology. Contact your local One-Stop Center to get started.
If you’d like to bring our resources to another state’s One-Stop Centers, contact Jeff Lareau
