One-Stop Pop Up Returns to Park Central Square After Hiatus
After a two-year hiatus due largely to the coronavirus, the Missouri Job Center is once again hosting a One-Stop Pop Up on Springfield’s Park Central Square, June 16 and 17, from 1-4 pm. The One-Stop Pop Up brings the resources of the Missouri Job Center into the heart of communities in the Ozark Region and provides information to those who may not be able to travel to a Job Center location.
“There are a number of barriers to employment like transportation and childcare that can prevent job seekers from visiting Job Centers to look for employment, so these Pop-Up Job Centers help to address that problem,” said Sally Payne, Interim Director of Workforce Development for the City of Springfield. “We are happy to be hosting these Pop Ups in each of the seven counties we serve,” Payne added.
The One-Stop Pop Up will be stationed on the square in front of the Springfield-Greene County Library and will move inside the library in the event of rain. The Pop Up Job Center provides services offered through the Missouri Job Center including resume assistance, help with job searches, a skills assessment and information on workshops and trainings.
