Mississippi’s community colleges work hand in hand with industries, helping them find, train and hire the right individuals. Providing an array of assessment tools to quickly review applicants, community colleges also assist businesses by providing pre-employment training and customized training programs.
Mississippi’s Workforce Investment Network (WIN) Job Centers assist businesses in finding workers through traditional recruitment activities, an online recruiting/application process and job fairs. WIN also provides on-the-job training, which helps offset training costs. Likewise, businesses may qualify for reimbursement of up to half of a new employee’s wages during training.
Mississippi Works connects employees with the right employers. The goal of this program is to ensure every Mississippian has a job and great businesses can find quality talent, resources and a solid infrastructure on which to build a successful future.
