Washington County CareerForce administers programs targeted to dislocated workers, low-income adults, disadvantaged youth and young adults, welfare-to-work participants and low-income seniors. Our goal is to help them become successful in securing and retaining jobs and to enhance marketable skills for the current labor market.

CareerForce serves employers by helping them find the right workers from entry-level to highly-skilled candidates.  CareerForce serves career seekers no matter where they are at in their career from just starting out to mid-level management and beyond.  CareerForce does this through customized career planning, resume revision and interview preparation, plus education and training for eligible career seekers and the ability to search thousands of Minnesota job openings online.
