South Central Workforce Development Board goes virtual to battle unemployment

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-A local organization is looking to help combat unemployment during this pandemic.

The South Central Workforce Development Board has rolled out new virtual webinars that deal with topics like resume building and interview skills.

These webinars are built to benefit those in high school and college who may struggle to find work right away, in addition to women who have been out of the workforce for any given period of time.

President and CEO of the South Central Workforce Development Board Dr. Robert Boone said battling unemployment starts with a push in the right direction.

“It’s life coaching meets workforce development. It really helps concentrate on the whole person, not just the part of our life that’s dedicated to the workforce and working,” Boone said.
