People who are unemployed and have exhausted their unemployment benefits may be eligible for a new program launching in Metro Detroit this January.
The Platform to Employment program is designed to help the long-term unemployed return to work.
The program entails a five week preparatory program which provides career development tools, workshops, and successful job search strategies. After completing the preparation, participants will be assisted in job placement where the future employer can take advantage of wage subsidies paid for by the program. The program is free and open to greater Detroit residents.
