Find Job Assistance for Laid-Off Workers

When you have been laid off, searching for employment should become your full-time job. It's a process that takes initiative and patience. You can conduct a search from home or come into a Kentucky Career Center, formerly known as the KentuckianaWorks One-Stop Career Center, for a self-service job search. If these methods do not result in a job, you may be eligible for intensive services.
