JSND can provide immediate services, known as rapid response, to employers and laid-off workers affected by the recession. Rapid response is ongoing collaborative work that often begins at the worksite shortly after a layoff is announced. There, JSND rapid response teams across the state introduce affected workers to available assistance and begin relationships that often last beyond reemployment.
The first step in rapid response is helping workers with unemployment insurance and assisting them with filing claims. JSND also helps workers assess their skills and compares these to the needs of other local employers that may be hiring. JSND customer service offices across the state help job seekers improve their job seeking skills through resume writing assistance, detailed job market information, assistance with job search, and identification of retraining opportunities.
FindJobsND.com, North Dakota’s largest online database of job openings and resumes, is another important tool for helping job seekers find reemployment, as well as a way for employers to find workers who may have been laid off but have skills that could help their businesses.
Many of the services available through rapid response are also offered at the local JSND customer service offices while preparations are made for the specific worksites.
