FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you have career counselors?

We do not have professional career counselors. We have trained professionals who work in our career center that can help with your resume, job search, and resources.

Can you file for unemployment here?

Workforce Partnership is not the unemployment office.  In fact, the Kansas Department of Labor no longer maintains any physical offices within the state to accept walk-in unemployment applications.  You must file for unemployment in Kansas through the Department of Labor’s website or over the phone.  You are more than welcome to use our phone or one of our computers to file.

Does Workforce Partnership help with resumes? Yes we do!

Can we find a job for you?

We can’t find a job for you, but we can sure help you find a job.  We will assist you with your job search by providing you with the resources to effectively search, apply and interview for jobs and can direct you to the KANSASWORKS job board (among many) as well as provide you with information about upcoming job fairs and hiring events.  For eligible individuals, we may also be able to provide you with funds to train you for your next career.

Is there a charge for our services?

All of our Job Seeker services and resources are free of charge.  The majority of our Employer Services are free.

Do we conduct mock interviews?

We have a great interactive workshop that can help with any interviewing questions you may have.   Occasionally we may have staff that is able to perform a practice mock interview.  You will need to visit our offices and meet our staff to learn more.
