Tennessee Career Centers: Education and Employment Assistance
Employment and educational services are available to job seekers and employers through the Tennessee Career Centers. Our goal is to bring together Tennessee workers and employers in a safe, profitable workplace. We do this through a wide range of programs offering everything from adult education programs to retraining opportunities for workers who have lost their jobs to professional job applicants seeking a career change.
Any TN resident is eligible. However, specific training offered may have specific eligibility criteria. Computer Workstations All Career Centers offer computers with Internet access. Use the Jobs4TN Online Web site to create and post a résumé online for exposure to major TN employers screening for employees. Search for jobs by different criteria, e.g., most recently posted, location, salary. Find data on in-demand occupations and training opportunities. Access to Employers Career Center staff can refer you to employers who have open positions for which you qualify, help you prepare for interviews, and arrange for you to apply. Often, Career Centers host hiring events and job fairs. For a list of local job fairs, log on to: http://tn.gov/workforce/calendar/hiring-events Skills Training Several types of training are available through the Career Center such as résumé writing, how to search for work, and interviewing as well as adult education classes to refresh math, writing, and reading comprehension in order to earn a GED. In addition, job seekers can earn Career Readiness Certificates. Grants for Secondary Education Job seekers can learn about training available from a TN Technology Center or other certified programs available to adults and dislocated workers. Veterans’ Programs Career Centers have veterans’ representatives who team with branches of the military to reach returning service members as they transition from military to civilian life. Veterans’ representatives make sure veterans receive priority in employment and training referrals, career counseling, and to other agencies for special services. Dislocated Workers Workforce training through the 13 Workforce Investment Areas that are partners in the Career Center System is provided to dislocated workers. You may be a dislocated worker if you have lost your job because of business closures, mass layoffs, economic climate, or as a result of natural or man-made disasters.
