Worksystems is one of three metro area Workforce Development Boards implementing an $8.5 million US Department of Labor grant - called ReBoot NW - that will provide training to unemployed veterans and long-term unemployed job seekers in our region who are interested in mid- to high-level careers in IT/Tech and Manufacturing. ReBoot NW is our region’s response to the White House’s Ready to Work Initiative, which is premised on the idea that anyone who is ready to work should be able to find a job that fits their skills or access training to find a better job. // Read more
