    some of which MINNCOR operates and others offered through Minnesota Correctional Education Center.
     
  • On-The-Job Experience: With an EMPLOY candidate, you are hiring someone who is not only technically trained,
    but an experienced, skilled worker with an average of one year on-the-job training.
     
  • Training in Job Search Preparation: EMPLOY participants are required to participate in 2-days of job search training;
    a program that focuses on how to be a successful employee.  Training is given in areas such as skill indentification techniques, interviewing, job retention, resume writing, and developing a positive work ethic.
