The Idaho Department of Labor will implement its new service model in the St. Maries area, providing direct mobile services to St. Maries, Kellogg and Plummer, beginning Monday, Sept. 30.
Labor staff will offer walk-in hours and appointment times in all three communities with the same services staff have traditionally provided. Those include resume writing, applying for jobs, filing for unemployment insurance benefits, mock interviews, connections to community resources, job training assistance and more. Staff will also continue to serve businesses with listing open jobs, collecting applications, connecting to resources and assisting with recruitment.
Jani Revier, Labor director, said many rural citizens who have not traditionally had easy access to in-person Labor services should be better served by this model.
