— Brett, Project Manager

"This is pretty much exactly what I had set out to do upon taking time to reflect post-layoff. I am so thrilled to be working for a good company and doing something that I enjoy doing!

"The MN Dislocated Worker program was great for me- I had the support of a specific Job Counselor who provided support, gave advice, and sent job opportunities to me. 

Everyone in the office is well connected, and upon applying for a program would send a recommendation for me on the various positions I was applying for. ​

They offered financial assistance in the form of parking vouchers for classes I was taking, the opportunity to take additional classes if I had wanted to, and free classes (including a good LinkedIn class in which I got a free professional photo taken). 

I really can’t say enough good things about my experience working with MN Job Partners- thank you!!"

Support You Can

Count On

For many of us, experiencing a loss of income can cause a great deal of stress. How will I pay my bills? What if unemployment isn't enough to cover everything? What about health insurance? We are here to help! A portion of each grant is set aside for support services; we are the only provider with family service advocates, professionals whose sole focus is helping you with the financial and emotional side of job loss.


Our family service advocates work closely with a MNsure Navigator and Brokers who can help you complete the MNsure application and select a plan that will work for you & your needs. These professionals hold regular sessions on-site with us during open enrollment, and come facilitate special sessions for our clients who need it outside of open enrollment.

We can assist those in need with rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, car payments or repairs, and more. As a participant in our program, you are also eligible for three free mental health counseling sessions, and financial counseling sessions as well. Our advocates have over 20 years of experience in social services, are respectful, and incredibly knowledgeable about other services you may be eligible for.Whatever your concern, Minnesota Job Partners is here to support you with a caring team of professionals.
