County Workforce Network aims to help residents in need

WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Workforce Network assists residents in need of training, employment or both.

Through funds provided under the federal Workforce Investment Act, Workforce staff provide career advising, résumé and job search seminars, mock interviews, résumé critiques, networking and support groups, internships/work experience, mentoring, on-the-job-training opportunities and grant funded vocational training.

The main purpose of the McHenry County Workforce Network is to assist county residents and businesses with their employment and training needs, leading to full–time employment, according to a county news release.

The department is federally funded, and all services are available at no cost.

During the last program year, which ended June 30, more than 250 residents who qualified for grant services found employment, which returned an estimated $7,502,730 in annual wages to the local economy.

For information about the variety of services available to youth, adults and businesses, visit the Workforce Center at 500 Russel Court, Woodstock, or the Workforce Network website at www.mchenrycountyworkforce.com.
