We also have Business Service teams comprised of professionals who work directly with employers to meet their specific staffing needs at no cost. Services available to employers include online posting of job vacancies, screening of applicants, job seeker resume searches, individual hiring events and job fairs, access to interview space within local offices, video conferencing accessibility for long distance interviews, and Rapid Response assistance to employers dealing with layoffs or company closure.

We serve the residents of the following 17 Kansas counties:

Allen, Anderson, Bourbon, Coffey, Chautauqua, Cherokee, Crawford, Elk, Greenwood, Labette, Linn, Lyon, Miami, Montgomery, Wilson, and Woodson.

Programs are funded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act in coordination with the Local Area V Workforce Development Board.
