Dozens Facing Job Uncertainty in The Ozarks

Make It Count

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri Job Center is working to help those facing job uncertainty in our area.

“There are all these new technologies that I’m not familiar with, especially with online applications,” said Springfield Resident Lisa Sharpe. 

Sharpe is a single mom who is searching for her next job opportunity. 

A task on dozens of local retail-workers lists as more brick-and-mortars closes their doors. 

Spokesperson for The Missouri Job Center, Katherine Trombetta, said her rapid response team is here to help.

“We want to help you find a job that fits you and that also helps you support yourself and possibly your family,” said Trombetta. 

The rapid response team is actually in the process of visiting stores in our area expected to close soon. 

“We’re visiting with these employees to see how we can help with employment transition,” said Trombetta. “As far as things like filing for unemployment or job searches.”
The job center also offers resources for each step of the job process, including resume-writing and mock-interview workshops. 

“This place is invaluable, I could not have gotten as far as I have without the workforce center,” said Sharpe.  

The Missouri Job Center is hosting an interview skills workshop this Friday.
