DEERWOOD - Meetings will be conducted Thursday at the Weyerhaeuser plant in Deerwood for those interested in Dislocated Worker Program funds.
The funds, designed to help people who have lost jobs because of downsizing or a business closing, will be available through the Rural Minnesota Concentrated Employment Program.
"The goal is to help people get back to work in quality jobs," said Craig Nathan, Brainerd WorkForce Center manager. "We can offer a variety of services depending on individual needs."
Thursday's meetings are scheduled for 12:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.
Rural Minnesota CEP can help those whose skills are not easily transferable to other occupations or industries, who are affected by a decline in the market demand for their skills, who need more training or education for a new occupation, or if there is a lack of jobs with earnings at a level comparable to the person's previous position.
More information may be obtained by contacting the Brainerd WorkForce Center at (800) 664-3595.
