More than 120,000 residents in Marion County filed for unemployment between March and June due to COVID-19, but a new resource launched by EmployIndy and Ascend Indiana provides a central location for those dislocated workers to connect with available jobs or training opportunities. Job seekers will log into an online technology platform called the Ascend Network. Then, the job seeker will follow a streamlined process to connect with needed career services and get individualized support to help them find meaningful employment or training.
On a recent edition of Inside INdiana Business, Gerry Dick interviewed Ascend Indiana President and CEO Jason Kloth, EmployIndy President and CEO Angela Carr-Klitzsch and Indianapolis Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Angela Smith-Jones about how the program works.[WATCH]
