There's a renewed push for unemployed Hoosiers to return to the workforce.
Indiana's governor said Monday that as of June 19, four federally-funded pandemic unemployment insurance programs will expire throughout the state.
Additionally, as of June 1, Hoosiers will once again have to prove they're searching for work in order to receive unemployment benefits - a pre-pandemic requirement waived to make filing for the benefits easier.
With those pandemic-related benefits set to expire throughout the state of Indiana, WorkOne Southwest in Evansville is hoping to help job seekers connect with an employer.
Officials with WorkOne Southwest say the organization is ready to go the extra mile to help connect unemployed individuals with work.
"We offer resume writing assistance, job search assistance, we can also help with interviewing -- trying to help somebody get the nerves out before they walk into the employer and sit down face to face with an interview," WorkOne Executive Director Sara Worstell told 44News.
Those services are free of charge, and we're told financial assistance is also available for those in need of paid training for a job they're hired for.
As of now, manufacturing and health care are two of the top-hiring industries.
