WELCOME

Former Refinitiv 

Employees

The MN Job Partners Team recognizes that this may be a challenging and complicated moment for those impacted by the layoffs at Refinitiv. 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.

 

Enrollment: The First Step

Participation in our program begins with attending a registration session. These sessions are facilitated by friendly, experienced staff who will begin by explaining the Dislocated Worker Program to you. Next, you will complete your application, with the facilitator walking you through the paperwork & answering any questions you may have.

 

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. This meeting is all about YOU: 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. At the completion of this meeting, you are enrolled & can start taking advantage of our program's benefits!

After meeting with your counselor, you will start working on your action steps - the items in your individual employment plan (IEP) that require your attention. Training, résumé assistance, workshops, interview preparation, and financial support are just a few features we can assist you with. You and your counselor will monitor your progress toward reaching your goals, and adjust your IEP as necessary.

Success By The Numbers

A former participant after a recent interview & job offer:


“They were so very impressed with all the efforts I had gone through to keep up in the industry with my conference attendance and to enhance & grow my computer skills as a designer. I CANNOT thank you and Minnesota Job Partners enough for the priceless offerings you have given me. You completely gave me an edge above the rest and I will be much more successful in this job because of it...You really have a SOLID program that honestly has meant so much to me (and so many others.) At a rough time when it was a struggle to get on my feet, I feel I had an organization and the government behind me that wanted me to succeed and offered me the financial, people and tangible resources to build my confidence and keep me relevant. And it showed in my interviews! I am really grateful for my job and it is a great new home."
