“The Dislocated Worker program gave me an opportunity not only to get a new job with better pay and full benefits, but to have a career with a great future and excellent growth potential.”
– Emma, Content Management Specialist
Lost job as a barista during pandemic; completed IT training program in web development
Abdi drove a cab before the pandemic and enjoyed the flexibility of the position. With assistance from the Dislocated Worker program, he obtained his Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) certification and got hired as a delivery driver, a position that comes with excellent benefits, which he didn’t have previously.
Tammy Dickinson, Career Pathways Manager for the City of Minneapolis, said JFCS is a key partner in the work of MSP TechHire and is helping to increase the number of skilled IT workers in Minneapolis. “The JFCS staff members that I work with are so talented and dedicated,” she said. “They offer quality service to the students from the initial intake and screening, as well as during training, and after graduation. I believe JFCS is the glue that holds the program together.”
