LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Have you been looking for work and it seems like it's taking months? Work Ready Oklahoma wants to help.
Work Ready Oklahoma is offering free services to Oklahomans unemployed for five months or more. The organization held an informational session today at the Hilton Garden Inn to tell potential workers about the program which offers things like tuition assistance for those wanting to finish their degree, interview training, resume development, professional development workshops, and career counseling. It also offers support like childcare and help with transportation.
"Whoever that may be that is looking for employment, we will have an opportunity for them.
