Mississippi's Department of Employment Security operates WIN Job Centers throughout the state in order to provide services for unemployed Mississippi residents; these services focus both on unemployment claims and job searches to help out-of-work residents find new jobs. In addition to receiving job placement assistance, Mississippi residents can receive job skills training and career counseling at a WIN Job Center. Some visitors to these centers may receive a referral to an external agency that provides similar services not offered at WIN Job Centers, notes the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.
WIN Job Centers provide additional services for job seekers, including Internet access. Job seekers who are military veterans can find additional assistance at these job centers, including priority job placement services.
Employers can also use the services provided by WIN Job Centers, as described by the Department of Employment Security. In addition to finding a database of resumes from active job seekers, business owners and managers can use WIN Job Centers' recruitment services.
WIN Job Centers are located throughout Mississippi with strategic locations in each county. The WIN Job Centers are distributed all over the state to allow out-of-work Mississippians to access unemployment, job search and skills training services. The Department of Employment Security also offers a job search website that Mississippians can see from home.
