Stocking the job market shelves: Local unemployed seek opportunities
Emily Hoffman/Headliner News

Ready to work: The Missouri Career Center mobile lab welcomes potential employees.

The Missouri Job Center hosts a two-day “One Stop Pop Up” in Christian County at Least Of These Food Pantry, on June 10 and again June 12, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each day.

The One Stop Pop Up brings the resources of the Missouri Job Center to Ozark and provides information to those who may not be able to travel to one of the Job Center locations in Springfield. 

“At the Missouri Job Center, staff realized that barriers like transportation and childcare can prevent job seekers from visiting Job Centers to look for employment, so these Pop-Up Job Centers were created to counteract that problem,” said Mary Ann Rojas, Workforce Development Director for the city of Springfield. 

The Pop Up will be stationed at Least Of These Food Pantry, 1720 James River Road in Ozark. The Pop Up Job Center provides services offered through the Missouri Job Center including resume writing assistance, help with job searches, a skills assessment and information on job skills classes such as Change One Thousand. 

For information about the event, please contact Katherine Trombetta at (417) 841-3389, or ktrombetta@springfieldmo.gov.
