Ever been fooled in a job interview? Some applicants interview well but then turn out to be disappointments on the job. Others might seem iffy during the interview process but become star employees. We might have the solution for you. Southeast KANSASWORKS, Inc., offers employers an opportunity to evaluate an individual job candidate’s job performance while providing training on basic skills. In addition to that, Southeast KANSASWORKS, Inc., provides wage and workers comp coverage during the established try-out period. Job applicants must be currently unemployed and meet program eligibility requirements.

Other services to employers which are provided free of charge include: online posting of job vacancies, screening of applicants, job seeker resume searches, individual hiring events and job fairs, access to interview space within local offices, video conferencing accessibility for long distance interviews, and Rapid Response assistance to employers dealing with layoffs or company closure.
