Whatever the case may be, we have two outstanding resources to get you back into the workforce: Workforce Investment Solutions and Richland Community College.

Workforce Investment Solutions (WIS) is the community resource for building the skilled and qualified workforce of tomorrow. Their team provides services and knowledge needed for job seekers to obtain employment and achieve their goals. WIS services are provided at no charge. With job search assistance, job training, business incentives and more, there’s a good reason to make WIS your first stop when you’re looking for that new career. Funding may also be available for training and tuition, books and fees.

Richland Community College’s (RCC) EnRich program is another vital piece in making your career switch. The EnRich program builds a bridge from the employer to the unemployed by constructing a skilled workforce through technical and essential skills training in manufacturing, building trades, trucking and logistics, and paraprofessional education. 89% of EnRich graduates are hired by major local employers upon successful completion of the program.

Together WIS and RCC work to make it easy for you. With the help of career coaches at WIS and RCC, you’ll be on the right path to finding that new job. To get started, complete the form here and someone from WIS and RCC will be in contact soon with further direction.
