DEED has launched a new 'Good Jobs Now' campaign. The goal is to highlight available jobs across the state to ensure anyone looking for work has access to opportunities.
In a virtual announcement DEED commissioner Steve Grove highlighted the need for a clear path to hiring opportunities.
Grove says the campaign is a new resource that will feature videos from Minnesota businesses and other helpful content for job seekers.
He added, “We do want to highlight both what is available in the market but also how we can help people get those jobs so we've been posting the top 30 industry sectors that have been available on our website over the past several months and we want to kind of bring that to light.”
During the webinar Grove also promoted manufacturing jobs saying their a good option for job seekers since many are high-paying with room for career advancement.
