Job Seeker Testimonials

  • New job, plus certification

    “I know without a doubt the Cape Girardeau Career Center’s pre-employment training really played a big role in me getting my new job, plus it helped me obtain a certification that other new hires will have to be working on. Thanks to the staff for giving me the opportunity to get the training that helped me get this great job!” -- Penny
  • Every person I met there went above and beyond my expectations

    "Unfortunately when I was laid off from my job of 9 years I didn’t know what to do. That’s when I found the friendly people at the Missouri Career Center in Cape Girardeau. Every person I met there went above and beyond my expectations and were very helpful! I had never been on unemployment before this time and I didn’t know what to expect, but the Career Center staff made searching for a new job effortless for me. For that I am eternally grateful!" -- Ben S., Parts Manager, Ward Hyundai
  • Without the Missouri Career Center I would not have a job that I love

    “After being downsized, I was informed of my options for new skills training by the Missouri Career Center. They helped me to obtain the information to have my school expenses paid, and to continue to receive unemployment benefits while attending vocational training in medical transcription. Being over 50, I was unsure if I would be able to balance life, school and be successful. I was fortunate enough to do my internship through Heartland Regional Medical Center, where I learned how to register patients, insurance filing, customer service, and the importance of information accuracy. Upon completion, I had a job waiting for me. I will never be able to thank all the people who helped me obtain the education and experience and for guiding me in the direction I needed to turn. Without the programs offered at the Missouri Career Center I would not have a job that I love and look forward to going to everyday.” -- Clara M.
  • A BIG ‘Thank You’

    “This is to inform you of the helpful assistance I received from Cindy Bennett at the Springfield Career Center. I registered with your agency to allow me to peruse your job offerings and to assist in current planning for the future. I greatly appreciate Ms. Bennett's patience and understanding. Along with registering me and showing how to interact with your website, she informed me of numerous resources that I believe will be beneficial to my efforts. I am grateful that your agency has personnel who are so helpful and gracious. A BIG ‘Thank You’ to all I interacted with: from the front desk to the folks behind it along with whoever presides over the entire operation. Your efforts are appreciated, for all you have done for me and for many others your agency has and will assist.” -- Scott K.
  • Sensational people

    “Many thanks to all the sensational people down at the Washington Career Center. There was never any time that I asked any one of you for help that you didn't always respond in the best way possible. You work was greatly appreciated." -- Robert S.
