Update on Coronavirus
From Nicole Sherard-Freeman, Executive Director of Workforce Development and Detroit at Work - City of Detroit
Hey Detroit at Work Friends!
Detroit at Work Career Centers are still open, and we are evaluating our schedule of events on a daily basis. Please check Detroitatwork.com or call 1-313-962-WORK to stay up-to-date on the events and services available at your neighborhood Detroit at Work Career Center.
In the meantime, there are three important things we want you to know we're doing:
1. Giving our dedicated Detroit at Work staff the information and materials needed to keep themselves and our customers safe.
2. Speeding up our existing plans to deliver more on-line work-readiness and job search solutions, and adding more 100% paper-based solutions so you can keep building your skills at home or on-the-go.
3. Working closely with our employers, including FCA, on phone-based and on-line interview solutions so that we keep you ready to go whenever they are.
Although it's too soon to know how the employment market will be affected, we are already talking with employers across all of Detroit's major industries on how we can help slow and/or correct the economic impact to their businesses.
4. Lastly, we're also talking with the State of Michigan every day about Detroit's recommendations for financial relief packages that will help you continue to handle your financial obligations during this time. You'll hear more as we get answers.
By staying smart, safe, and calm, we'll be in a great position to keep things moving and quickly bounce back.
Keep watching for Detroit at Work updates! We're excited about keeping you in-the-know about what's ahead!
