Spring Contest: Send Referrals, Win Prizes

Hey community! We're kicking off a contest with prizes for you and your organization. 
All you have to do to enter is send us referrals. We'll do the rest. As for the prizes... 🏆🏆

For Your Org: $500 to Any Nonprofit
We're giving away $500 to the nonprofit of your choice. If your organization is a 501(c)3, that can be you!

Any organization that refers 10 jobseekers by June 30 will be entered to win. That's around 3 people per month. We'll announce the results in July, so stay tuned.

For You: A Mug & Local Coffee
Be the envy of the office with your very own Working Fields mug (believe us, it holds a tremendous amount of caffeine).
To win a mug, submit an employer referral. If we sign the employer on as a partner, we'll deliver you a mug and a stash of local coffee!
Why employers? You know your area best and have valuable insights into local businesses with the best environment, highest pay, or most openings. When we offer a diversity of jobs, we provide a better experience.

Just fill out this form & note it's a referral.

Welcoming All Jobseeker Referrals

We work with anyone to provide free, full-time employment support. Referrals from our community are the most effective way to identify individuals who could benefit from our services.
