Iowa Workforce Development Highlights Leaders and Programs Strengthening Iowa’s Workforce
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen to a new weekly podcast from Iowa Workforce Development. Apprenticeship programs, entrepreneurism, technology programs and resources for veterans and Iowans with disabilities are just a few of the subjects that have been covered. This podcast connects the dots and dives deep into resources available for both job seekers and employers with an overall goal of improving the workforce in Iowa.
“It’s not really about getting your first job or second job, it’s how do we help you become self-sufficient to meet your employment dreams. How do we figure out where you are in that journey? It could be an informational interview, it could be a job shadow, it could be work readiness, it could be work-based learning, it could be education post-secondary training or on-the-job training, and the VR services are such that we have some resources that we can help fund all of those things.” – David Mitchell
