Monroe County Working to Achieve National Workforce Recognition

For several years, citizens of Monroe County have worked toward being designated a National Work Ready Community and now we are close to achieving this significant goal. A Work Ready Community is more attractive to prospective employers because it certifies the skill level of a community’s workforce. This nationally standardized certifica

tion will present an accurate picture of the ability and knowledge of workers in Monroe County. The county is just a few volunteers away from receiving its recognition. If you, or anyone you know is currently looking for a new job; please plan to join us on Wednesday, December 7th at the Paris High School Library for an informational session. You will not only be helping you or a friend find a rewarding job, but you will also help Monroe County achieve an important distinction. Event starts at 6:30pm and attendees are welcome to come any time between 6:30pm and 7:00pm. After 7:00pm, those interested in registering may utilize the school’s computers to get started on joining the Work Ready Community Initiative.
