If you’re currently looking for work, or trying to make yourself more marketable to employers, you should visit E-Magnolia.org. E-Magnolia is supported by the Mississippi Department of Employment Security with the goal of helping Mississippians obtain online degrees and certificates. The program offers certification in areas deemed critical to Mississippi’s workforce needs. Students can take classes relating to health care, information technology, construction, and office administration. All classes are available online and financial assistance is available for those who qualify. This is a really great service that only three other states are offering. It’s not often we can say that Mississippi is on the cutting edge of something so I’m hoping all residents will try to take advantage. Also, soon you’ll be able to reach E-Magnolia through our recession resources page. It is a great resource for Mississippians looking for work.
I promise this will be my last unemployment blog. A co-worker called me a “Debbie downer” the other day. That hurt.
