Former Pace Industries Employees
The MN Job Partners Team recognizes that this may be a challenging and complicated time for those impacted by the layoffs at Pace. Our thoughts are with you. There are services available to those who are losing their jobs, free of charge, to help you through this transition, including the Dislocated Worker Program.
We will be here as long as you need; we are committed to supporting you.
Who we are
Minnesota Job Partners was selected in September 2019 by a committee of Pace employees to provide Dislocated Worker Program services to those impacted by the layoffs. This program of benefits is free, and provides you with opportunities for training, career counseling, résumé assistance, financial support, and more. State and federal funding make this program possible.

How to enroll
To enroll, call us at (612) 676-3710.
Let us know that you are a former Pace Industries worker, and we can quickly sign you up to attend a Registration Session - where you will complete your application and begin your enrollment in our program!
Please prepare the following documents for your session:
Driver’s License or State-issued photo ID
Social Security Card/W2
If you don’t have all of these items on hand, don’t worry! You can share them with your counselor at a later date, but we'll need them prior to completing your enrollment (state requirement).
ATTENDING A REGISTRATION SESSION
Participation in our program begins with attending a registration session. These sessions are facilitated by friendly, experienced staff who will begin by explaining what the Dislocated Worker Program is and how it works. Next, you will complete your application, with the facilitator walking you through the paperwork & answering any important questions you may have for us.
MEETING YOUR COUNSELOR
After attending an enrollment session, you will be contacted by your counselor to arrange a one-on-one session at our offices. In this meeting with your counselor, you will establish a relationship and share your story; your education, your work history, your family, health, finances - you want to give your counselor your full history so they can best help you determine a plan to achieve your goals.
COMPLETING YOUR ENROLLMENT
Once you have attended a registration session, provided all required documentation, and met with your counselor, you are officially enrolled and can begin taking advantage of all of the benefits our program has to offer: Career Counseling, Résumé Development, Job Search Assistance, Interview Preparation, Funding for Training, Financial Support, and Job Search Workshops!
