STATE OF MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EMPLOYMENT & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, THE
Award to CareerOneStop.org, a Career Information WebSite, to fund Video Challenge ($22,000) and Desk Guide Projects ($150,000). This total award is $172,000, of which $150,000 are ARRA funds. The Online Reemployment Resource Guide project is a resource to complement and add content to the existing CareerOneStop (COS) Web Site Worker ReEmployment portal. The purpose of this initiative is to inform unemployed workers, frontline staff in the public workforce system, and strategic partners about resources for career assistance, training, support services, and other resources that are available to assist unemployed workers. The Online Reemployment Resource Guide will expand the resources currently available on the COS Worker ReEmployment Portal and provide a navigational guide to the ReEmployment resources found on the COS sites. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) will partner with Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) to query constituencies for input to the Online Reemployment Resource Guide. An analysis will be provided by ETA by September 30, 2010 with results showing what job seekers, states and local staff, and service providers would like to see in the Online Reemployment Resource Guide. ETA will make the final determination of the content for the Online Reemployment Resource Guide.
