I lived in Los Angeles for a few years at the start of this century. While there I faced unemployed a few times. When I was first laid off, I assumed that I’d be able to easily access nonprofit employment services similar to what I was used to in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find help. But that’s another blog for another day …
I’m often impressed and grateful for the multitude of free and low cost social services available in Minnesota, especially employment resources. So when Twitter pal Christina, of Northern Cheapskate, kindly asked me to write a blog, I knew I’d write about free job search resources.
The blog Free Job Search Resources mentions several nonprofit and government agencies that help Minnesota job seekers with all aspects of the job search. But it is by no means an exhaustive list.
If you know of any organizations offering free job search help, let me know and I’ll add them to the list. In the meantime, if you are looking for career assistance, contact any of the agencies I listed, go to the United Way for more agencies, or contact a licensed career counselor.
